Shadia’s recent theatrical work includes the role of Barbe in Behind the Fantasy Behind the Fairy Tale and the role of the lawyer’s wife in Dexter, directed by Bill Jonson and presented by the ActNow Foundation.

Since stepping into the limelight in my early teens, I have achieved success around the world by appearing in films, television, and fashion shows. I have worked for world-renowned photographers and designers, and have been on magazine covers around the globe. In May 2004, I appeared in Cartier's Spring-Bling print fashion advertisements called, "Black Panthre," which appeared in Emirates Woman magazine. David Taylor Bramley photographed me for the issue. I also worked as a top model for a show entitled, "Loveliness - The Force of French Fashion" by artist and designer, Lord Lichfield. The show was held at Chanel and Sonia Rykiel boutiques.

In Emirates Woman, I was honored as the "First Lady of Frock" for a designer profile of my unique style. In June 2005, I launched the first Emirates Airlines Calendar, where I was shown driving a red, 1960 Ferrari to Italy in an image called, "Tuscany." I was also the primary subject of a photo-journalistic profile with photographer, Mufit. The profile was featured in a popular Turkish magazine called, Hello Turkey.
