Shayla is a Jewish-American girl who was born in Cheyenne, Wyoming and raised in the Brooklyn, New York City. Shayla’s childhood wasn’t a pleasurable one. She was labeled as “educable mentally retarded”.
Shayla was always depressed during her childhood and the name “Israel” always creates a nostalgic breeze in her mind. She wants to visit Israel at least once in her life to know what that nostalgic breeze is all about. She hasn’t yet been able to go there.
Shayla is a great singer and dancer. Her friends and family all always encouraged her to create a Youtube channel to showcase her talent. Shayla was too shy to be on Youtube first, but she gradually started to think about it.
Only after first 2 weeks of creating the Youtube channel, one of Shayla’s videos went viral and got 500, 000 views within that month only.
Shayla’s confidence was very much boosted and she continued to upload 2 new videos each week. Now, Shayla has over 2 million subscribers on the Youtube, over 1.5 million followers on Twitter and over 5 million Facebook followers.
Now, whenever Shayla looks back at her past, she cries. She cries thinking about how much of her life she has wasted thinking about questions like “What others are thinking about her?” “Why god made her a retard?” “Why she isn’t as intelligent as the others?” “Will she ever find the man of her dreams?”
Shayla also cries tears of joy when she reads the comments on her Youtube videos, Twitter and Facebook.
Just like Les Brown said “Someone’s opinion of you doesn’t have to become your reality.”
Shayla is a Halloween freak and she is thinking of starting her own Halloween website as well.
