  • It was wondeful to see Nadia tell her story through her childhood to adulthood. Finally to see a young woman in her time 80s. 
    Praise to her experience and travelling. She is an excellent role model to the young women and also ethnic minority as well.
    Amazed to see her achievement to be an actress as a true career. Fingers crossed she will get into the screen one day.
    It was very nice to hear that she care about deaf community, culture and education.
    We are with you.
    Peace x

  • A wonderful journey achieved. It is a great example to share with so many younger generation and to hearing parents of deaf children that we, deaf people can take opportunities in life and see if we can achieve more as well as learn more to gain more for the future deaf generation. Role models is so much needed. What a great role model!
