Hi, I'm Naadiya

An ambitious, thoughtful, innovative creator with a love for humanity. 

Before moving to the U.S., I grew up in paradise. A secluded tiny tropical island that was relatively unknown to most of the world. Everyday, I was surrounded by intoxicating beauty in nature, people and culture. There, I learnt that true beauty is a feeling and that creativity is a promise. I view creativity as an expression in repetition of the most beautiful love story. A complexity hidden in simplicity of which I've set out to master. Through creativity, I am writing a narrative with my life a story that inspires.

Naadiya is a rockstar. She is not only incredibly talented but incredibly hard working. I loved having her in the class as her work consistently challenged the class to do better.
