Selena Li Sze-wa (born 12 February 1981) is a Hong Kong-born Canadian actress and former Miss Hong Kong 2003 contestant. That year, as a contestant from Toronto, Selena was the winner of Miss Talent and Miss Photogenic.[1] Prior to entering the Miss Hong Kong pageant, Selena attended the University of Toronto studying for a Bachelor of Business Commerce degree. She is now an actress with TVB in Hong Kong. She can speak Cantonese, English, Mandarin. After her character in the TVB series To Grow With Love was well-received, she has gained attention in Hong Kong with many commercial ads.

In May 2007, with much controversy over the battle of TVB and ATV, Virginia Lok has selected 10 potential "fa dans" of the future, including Natalie Tong, Vivien Yeo, Yoyo Chen, Tracy Ip, Aimee Chan, Leanne Li, Angel Sung and Sharon Luk. Selena Li was regarded[clarify] as one of the most successful actresses of the 10 selected, as she had many opportunities in participating in TV dramas.[citation needed]

In 2015, Selena announced on her Weibo blog that she had decided to change her stage name, Li Sze Wan (李詩韻), back to her original name, Li Sze Wa (李施嬅), in memory of her grandmother, who had recently died.[citation needed]
