The life of an artist can often be isolated and cold. I fight to remain unattached to my work as a video editor, because of the inevitable threat of a client's email entitled REVISIONS. In addition, I am always searching for ways to maintain a social and creative balance. RELEASE is my key to freedom. It has granted me access to an outstanding number of new people, and it allows me to safely give myself to a cause without fear of anything being discarded. Furthermore, this project has become my loudspeaker to promote the benefits of using art as a form of powerful self-expression and unification.
Hadaya is an adamant supporter of increasing art in and out of schools, as well as introducing students and professionals to her field of work. She recently served as a panelist for the CMJ Music Marathon 2012. She creates annual workshops for the elementary students at Girls Prep Lower East Side and is also a weekly student mentor with Free Arts NYC. Additionally, she is the Post Production teacher for GRAMMY Camp NY each summer, where she works with talented high schoolers from around the country.
Hadaya is always interested in learning about new opportunities to educate and mentor.
