Neda Barghashi is an Iranian-Canadian internet personality, being the first ever Iranian beauty blogger who started producing beauty related/ makeup tips and tutorials in a video format in Persian/Farsi language in 2014. In 2016, she started making comedy videos on Instagram. She was struggling with anxiety and depression and had no friends to connect with, so she turned to Instagram to entertain herself and hopefully find friends and now she has over 1.1 million followers on her @nedayasee2 Instagram account.
Her goal is to empower women, inspire them to be comfortable with their body and femininity, and promote self-love and independency. Also, her main goal is to entertain her followers and connect with them on a personal and deep level, make them laugh and escape their daily stress. She is hoping to be the voice of girls and women in Iran and is asking for their rights and freedom. Her idea is to be a woman that wanted to be free, to do comedy without any risk, and connect with feminist groups and advocate for women rights in Iran. She is also trying to challenge and push at the boundaries of Iranian strict and traditional culture, anti feminism behavior, and advocate for women rights especially in Iran with a comedy twist.
