(SISS) Hi Kadia, where are you from and where are you currently spending your time? (Kadia Zhané) Hey, I wanted to start off by saying thank you so much for interviewing me. It truly is a pleasure. I am originally from The Bronx but I have been traveling between the Tri-State area. (SISS) What was one of the hardest things that you had to go through? What advice would you give someone going through the same struggle? (Kadia Zhané) One of the hardest things I had to go through was realizing that not everyone is your friend. They would want to be around you but that doesn't necessarily mean they really vibe with you. I have a pure heart and a lot of people have seen it and try to take advantage. I would tell someone that's going through what I went through to just remain the same, appreciate the ones who are there for you and never let them turn you cold. (SISS) Music | Fashion | Model | Dancer #SISS Tell us more… who is @kadiazhane and what are you most proud of? (Kadia Zhané) Haha! I mean Kadia is honestly a fantasy I created for myself. Growing up, I was not comfortable in my own skin. I wanted to break out of my shell and the only way I was able to was when I sung, danced, acted, or modeled. I wanted to create the
ultimate fantasy for myself. I was able to be who I wanted without anyone's opinion stopping me. The thing that I am most proud of is still pursuing what I love most. I'm proud of my ambition and tenacity. (SISS) Finish this sentence, I have a dream… ? (Kadia Zhané) I have a dream that one day we will all unite together and change the world in a positive way.

My friends and family call me a workaholic but I am just passionate with what I do. It's fun and my therapy. (SISS) How do you deal with disappointment? How do you Keep Going? (Kadia Zhané) Honestly, I don't really see disappointment as disappointment. I see disappointment as a challenge for me to find another way to get what I want. I see disappointment more as a NOT RIGHT NOW versus NO. I Keep Going by trying to have a positive mindset. Your outlook on life really plays a part on how it will turn out. Positive vibes only! (SISS) What is your superpower? (Kadia Zhané) I feel like my superpower is to entertain, make people laugh and to love. (SISS) Finish the sentence, my life has gotten so much better since… ?
