Aneesa Badshaw is a creative director, actress, and recording artist from Canada. In addition to that triple threat, she’s considered one of Canada’s top urban Indo-Guyanese fashion models. Born in Hamilton, the dynamic young model was raised in Toronto and Mississauga, Ontario where she attended The Woodlands Secondary School. When Aneesa was 19 years old, her stepfather passed away in a car accident. Because of this tragedy, she was left to cover the bills. This was a catalyst to her ambition. Still fresh and naive to the modelling industry, Aneesa needed financial stability so she became a line cook for monthly income. Being that young, Aneesa juggled a jam packed schedule between auditions, modelling gigs, cooking, and supporting her mother. A highly reputable talent agency ended up seeing Aneesa’s modelling work and quickly signed her. She then ended up getting booked for print, commercials, magazines, movies, music videos, and fashion lines. This was the beginning of her career and when she finally realized her calling.
Aneesa cites her first memorable role in the movie Below her Mouth by April Mullen, where she played an exotic dancer. Aneesa caught the attention of Danier Leather, who was one of the main models for its advertising campaign. She also modelled for Bollywood designer Manik Jassal and India’s top celebrity fashion designer Shyamal Bhumika; this was featured in the Jashan TO fashion show in March 2018. Aneesa had abundant success in 2018 when she was hand picked by Miss Globe Canada to represent Guyana at the pageant in Beijing, China. This was huge moment and milestone for her career, as she got crowned the winner of Miss South America and also Miss Entertainer. She has since been casted in several music videos, working for reputable artists such as Drake, Baka A.K.A Not Nice, Riff Raff, Kanye West’s protege Cyhi the Prynce, Eminem’s artist KXNG CROOKED, Sean Paul, Karl Wolfs,Sean Kingston, Bubba Sparxx,Harvey Stripes, Charly Black, Tommy Lee, Sikka Rhymes, Deewunn, Eyesus, Deep Jandu,RoachKilla, Gary Sandhu.
