As well as being creative, Sheylan is very intelligent as well: she can speak three different languages!

She has this to say about her amazing skill: Knowing three languages is a huge privilege! You can talk to so many people and learn about new cultures.  

Sheylan’s creative journey has been amazing at just 10 years old. She says that even as a baby, she was fascinated by actors and started acting herself. She’d imitate animals, other people, and her favorite singers.

As she got older, she started dancing and began her art career with drawing. She even learned how to play the piano and violin. But with her busy creative schedule, she always made time for her brothers that inspire her to do what she loves. English and Spanish speaking children Sheylan

Sheylan has always been interested in performing since she was very young. In first grade she started her performance career with singing in a talent show, and now she loves to sing that same song for lots of other occasions.

Sheylan says that she NEVER stops singing, and it’s one of her favorite things to do. 


In addition to the three languages that Sheylan already knows, she says she’d love to learn another language. That would allow her to go to different places in the world and talk to even more people. She says she’d also like to learn more about singing and develop her creative skills with her artwork. She’d also like to become an expert about animals and have lots of pets!


Being creative is doing what you like to do. Cooking, singing, acting, playing, running, reading, writing, drawing, and more with your imagination is all being creative. 

She says being creative is so much fun, and the results and rewards from creativity is the best part. Here is Sheylan with a certificate celebrating her creativity!

Sheylan loves helping others, including her family, friends, and neighbors. She says when she helps others, she feels happy and has a lot of fun!
