Nadja got accepted to Julliard which is where she went to school. After that she starts to feel faltered, losing self confidence and thinking that she couldn't play the violin good enough. Then she starts playing a piece without knowing it and she does really good. Next She meets up with her friend Cecile Licad and Cecile told her "Don't give up" Which gives her resilience. After that she put her name down for an audition and got accepted. Then she started to practice for thirteen hours a day. She then gets the idea to play her strong piece for the finals. She made it to the finals after playing her weak piece in the semi-finals. At last she plays her strong piece and comes in 1st pace.
