The Wealth of Asifa Mirza

How rich is Asifa Mirza? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $2 million, earned through success in her various endeavors. She has gained a significant amount of wealth from modelling, and also working as a vice president in marketing of the VCorp company. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life and Education

Asifa is of Persian and Indian descent, though despite her family’s adherence to traditions as well as culture, she has never felt that she was tied down by the strict ones, and was raised to be more liberal with her decisions as she grew up in California. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) which is the third oldest undergraduate campus among the 10 in the University of California system.

The school has over 40,000 students with over 100,000 applicants coming in each year. The school has produced 24 Nobel laureates, two US Air Force Chief Scientists, three Fields Medalists, and five Turing Award winners. Many faculty members have also excelled in the field of academics. The university is considered one of the country’s public ‘ivies;, and is also known for its popular and successful college sports teams. Asifa completed her undergraduate studies and then proceeded to try her hand at modelling endeavors.

Return to School and Marketing

After modelling for a few years, Mirza earned some income, but never really found a high amount of success in that field. Knowing that modelling wasn’t a lifetime endeavor, she then proceeded to use her education to begin working as a part of the marketing team of VCorp Services. The company’s name has never been specified but she has worked her way up to eventually become the Vice President of Marketing. Wanting to rise further and increase her capabilities, she decided to return to school.

Asifa Mirza

While still working in marketing, she also completed graduate studies. Her position meant that she had a larger legal responsibility, but recent years have seen the rise of less formal definitions of the role in an organization. As a part of her job, she handles brand management, advertising, market research, product management, customer service, pricing, marketing communication and other related aspects. A high position in marketing often means that each day is different due to the fluid nature needed for successful marketing. She handles analytics, creative tasks, and also handles personnel within her company.

Shahs of Sunset

While Asifa was gaining a lot of income through her professional work, her fame really grew when she was cast as one of the regular members of the reality television show “Shahs of Sunset”. She mentioned that she had always been interested in trying out at reality shows as she watched shows such as “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”. Shahs airs on Bravo and follows Persian American friends as they try to juggle their careers as well as their social lives. The show also follows them as they try to balance their family relationships, along with the traditions of their heritage.

In later seasons, a few of the Shahs left, with Asifa joining around the fourth season. The show is produced by Ryan Seacrest under his company Ryan Seacrest Productions (RSP), although the fourth season was delayed after Bravo denied the post production crew a union contract, leading them to go on strike for a month. Asifa appeared as a main cast member but then transitioned to more of a guest role in the fifth season, as she declined a long-term reality show career.

Personal Life and Social Media

For her personal life, it is known that Mirza was married to Bobby Panahi, becoming engaged after only dating for a few months. Many expected the duo to hold a large wedding as expected of their cultural tradition, but instead they went to Las Vegas to marry in a private ceremony attended by their cab driver. The move proved controversial as each of their family’s wanted an occasion where they could celebrate together. They have a child together, but it was during her pregnancy that problems started to develop between the two.

She accused Panahi of being unfaithful in their relationship, and after three months the two decided to get a divorce. Even after their divorce, the two lived together in the same house for several months, but after deciding to move away from each other, it was then they realized that they still loved each other. They gave their relationship another chance though they have not remarried since then.

Similar to numerous television personalities, she is active online through accounts on social media, including Instagram in which she posts a lot of personal photos and videos. She also has a Twitter account, though it is not as updated as her Instagram.
