What started as a way to escape the difficult phase of Nadiah’s life has now blossomed into a passion that she could not let go and run away from.
Nadia Wafa is currently the top female pilot in Malaysia for paragliding discipline and in training not just to be a professional paragliding athlete but also a World Champion. The journey is never easy and being a female in a male dominated sport is definitely sure have its challenges, but adversities were not stopping Nadiah from being afraid to pursue her goals.
She first had the first taste of being up on the air 4 years ago on her very first solo static ram skydiving in Segamat, Johor. At that time, she had to stay self motivated as she was attempting to try something new and from then, one adventure leads to another and finally paragliding. In December 2015, she was privileged to attend the FAI World Air Games in Dubai, being there seeing all the possibility and achievement of men and women doing extraordinary things up on the air was one of those moment that shifted her focus and that event had inspired her to pursue paragliding to professional level.
