The young, fearless, and talented Navia Ziraili Robinson was welcomed into this world on May 4, 2005, where she already started pursuing performing arts only five years later! Robinson is best known for her role “Nia Baxter” alongside the very well-known Raven-Symoné in “Raven’s Home”— a “Disney Channel” series based on the iconic series “That’s So Raven.” But, it all started for Robinson when she took part and won the Overall Top Child Model award at six years old in Orlando, whereafter she was signed by Generation Model Management.
Navia Ziraili Robinson was born in Georgia, U.S., and raised by her parents, Jeffrey and Gianna Robinson, with her two brothers, Maz and Gianna Robinson.

In 2010, when she was only five years old she began pursuing performing arts and took part in a competition in Orlando where she won the Overall Top Child Model award of 2011. This award was the start of big things as she was noticed and signed by the modeling agency Generation Model Management in the same year.
Navia Robinson landed her major role in the B.E.T. Network drama series “Being Mary Jane.” Robinson played Mary Jane’s niece ‘D’Asia’ for two seasons, and her first episode premiered on July 2, 2013, and appeared in her final episode in 2015. Robinson did not sit still for a second after the end of her role as she got an invitation from Disney to join their two-week-long summer boot camp in 2015, Los Angeles. The young actress then scored her second big role as ‘Nia Baxter’— the role she’s best known for — in the Disney Channel sitcom “Raven’s Home.” She announced the exciting news on April 4 when she posted on Instagram “I will see you on Raven’s Home.”

The following year, she worked on the T.V. series “Do It Duo” with Jason Maybaum and Issac Ryan Brown, with the first episode premiering on June 1, 2018.
