After 10 months, she decided to pursue new challenges out of South Africa and she became an Independent Consultant for Environmental Marketing in Asia.

In October 2017, Nadja became Head News Editor and Blockchain Journalist at Invest in Blockchain, an American-owned blockchain investment publication.
