"Now that I am older dance has grown to be so much deeper than just a passion. It is has become my meditation and my constant healing. It’s my way to relay messages of happiness, sadness, frustration, all the emotions you can think of, especially when I can’t put it into words. What I tell people a lot of the time is that you can get to know me on a verbal level but if you truly want to know what I’m all about, feel my vibe at that moment or catch a glimpse of my story, just watch me freestyle and that’s Nadiah. That’s my pure soul right there. "
