IMDb: Cairo Zion
Cairo Zion is a SAG AFTRA-e teen actor, model, and athlete. But, he is most known for his athletic ability, and uncanny balance.
Whistle Sports filmed a mini-documentary about Cairo for their series No Days Off, and he was the lead in a series by Got Milk, ft. Spice Adams. He is also well-known as a competitor on American Ninja Warrior Jr.
While athletics helped create a name for himself, acting is his true passion. In 2022 alone, Cairo did numerous commercials, a feature film called Wheelies Inc, and was the lead in the short film, Sunflower Girl.
Recently, Cairo was the recipient of the 2022 Global Child Prodigy Award in Dubai for his athleticism. The prestigious event celebrates gifted and talented kids from around the world. Its host, his Highness Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, heads the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Culture, Youth, and Social Development.
Cairo earned the title of Costa Rican Grom of the Year for Skimboarding in 2018, but he is also known for doing extreme sports such as surfing, skateboarding, wakeboarding, unicycle stunts and freeline skates.
Diagnosed with dyslexia at age 7, he began making vlogs about his struggles and became very passionate about telling his story. His advocacy has reached classrooms as far as India and Costa Rica. Because of this, Cairo was highlighted at the Asia Pacific Dyslexia Forum 2021 in Japan.
He currently lives in the Tampa Bay area, but he was born in New York City’s west village, to parents who instilled a passion for travel at a very young age. Cairo has travelled extensively; but his heart lies in the “off the beaten path” areas of Miami, New York City, Costa Rica, Rishikesh India, and Dubai.
Cairo’s background is very diverse. His heritage is a mix of European, Puerto Rican, West African, and even Native American (Comanche, and Taino). His step-father is Sikh from New Delhi, so he has been raised closely with the traditions of India, as well.
