Success Stories: Nadia Awwad

A Model Student

Nadia Awwad Fashion model and UHD student, Nadia Awwad, focuses her passions and energy into multiple channels. As a professional model since age 15, Awwad can be seen in print ads, catalogs, movies, and on runways. But she doesn't stop there; she's been working on a line of lip products that she's planning on marketing after she graduates in spring of 2012. To top this, she relentlessly guards her GPA to keep it at the 4.0 level she carried last year.

Whatever she pursues, her focus is intense. She initially decided that she was interested in an international business degree, but quickly learned that marketing was her passion. With the marketing classes, "I learned how to brand myself as a model; how to brand my product." She speaks with excitement about the knowledge she's gained and the support she's received from UHD faculty. "I've gained insights and support for my product from teachers, counselors; and I want to get my product patented."

Awwad's brains and beauty are as big as her heart. Having just finished a charity modeling event, "Fashion For a Cause" she was pleased to be involved in an event that featured 15 designers with funds benefiting breast cancer research.
