2015 bio:

Niara Iman is Miss District of Columbia Teen USA 2015. Niara won the title after finishing second runner up the year prior, which was her very first pageant. Niara is currently a Junior at the Washington Latin Public Charter School where she participates in Student Government, leads the Indian Dance Club, and serves as an Ambassador for the school, assisting in recruiting new students.

Niara is an avid traveler and has traveled to France, India, Mexico and England. In 2012, Niara traveled to the England for the Olympics and it was there she saw and realized after seeing so many different cultures and people coming together, that she wanted to see the world and learn as much as she could about her own country. Shortly thereafter, Niara spent a month traveling throughout the United States with 34 Iraqi students. Niara, who has studied the Arabic language for the past three years, was able to utilize her knowledge of the Arabic language as well as her pride for her home country, and was able to help celebrate and unite the two countries coming together.

Niara’s other passions include dance, baking cupcakes, and painting. One day she hopes to become Secretary of State but for now, she has her sights on the Miss Teen USA crown and cannot wait to compete for the title in Atlantis, Paradise Island this coming August.
