Nadia expressed gratitude to friends industry friends Sania Saeed, Muniba Mazari, Adnan Siddiqui and Sultana Siddiqui for always being by her side.

"I can only pray Allah brings respect and humility to their hearts. After all fame and name is nothing in the scheme of the universe and we are all, in the end, buried in the same soil,"

"In the end though, I have stood by myself," she said. "It is my breathe that keeps me alive, my self that protects me. It is my mind that wakes up to the dawn light, searching for clarity, loving green trees, moving against silver blue skies. It is my heart that feels full to the brim w gratitude and joy for every amazing blessing and gift the Creator exposes me to."

"Although I shall fall again, I know I have the will to learn to stand. And with each fall, I shall rise stronger and clearer. May I always be shown the path towards truth, kindness, humility, respect, love, and then have the sense and will to walk it. Shukar Alhamdolillah and thank you so much," she concluded.
