Nadja Sonnenberg-Salerno (Cause and Effect)

She was such a good violin player that she got accepted to Julliard School of Fine Arts. Because Nadja began to doubt herself when she began at Julliard, she stopped playing violin for several months. Nadja always fought her mother and teachers a lot. She didn't want her mother making her play the violin, but she trusted her mother, and she decided to play. Good thing that she did because Nadja really liked playing after a while. Nadja didn't believe in herself again when she saw all of the other players at Julliard. Nadja signed up for a competition and when it was her turn to audition she was so nervous that her face became pale and she was very cold. She was out of shape at the time and really didn't believe in herself. Nadja's house caught on fire because she left the meat she was cooking on the stove and it burned her house. Luckily her house phone still worked and she got the call that she was moving to the next round , and she was so happy that it made her want to get in shape. She made the next round and then made it to the finals. Nadja and her best friend made the finals and they became Combative going against each other. But Nadja won and got the three thousand dollars. She then traveled around the whole world and continues to play for everyone. All of these Adversities caused her to have many Triumphs in her career.
