Amaliya Shakirova was born and raised in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan in a loving, mixed raised and mixed religion family with her mother, grandmother and grandfather. Amaliya loved the screen since childhood as she would stand on chair and give performances in front of her family members. As of now, Amaliya currently lives in Manila, Philippines.

At thirteen, the stunning beauty already started to travel as a model and live on her own along with graduating from Professional College of Design.

On winning the Miss Grand Uzbekistan 2023 crown, Amaliya expressed, “I was blessed to have an official press conference and crowning ceremony at the Luxent Hotel in Manila, Philippines. It's hard to express the depth of my gratitude, but I want to extend my heartfelt thanks to each and every member of my incredible Miss Grand Uzbekistan team.”

Last year, Amaliya joined her first ever pageant, where her participation was confirmed almost a week before the pageant camp. Despite of all the complication, she managed to win first runner-up.



As for her humanitarian work, Amaliya has worked with NGO organizations such as Amal THZ, a charity organization where she worked with orphans in Malaysia and Ocean Hero Conservation (UNDP project N14) in Malaysia. She wishes to be a good role model for advocating/volunteering for “Stop the War and Violence” campaign.
