Sheylara (pronounced shay-LA-ra)
Real name: Shen Qiaoyun (pronounced shen2 qiao3 yun4) [沈巧蕰]
New Media Artiste
I’m a dreamy girl with a zest for life, embracing everything that life has to offer and thrilling in new experiences.
(Not that it’s necessarily a good thing. My dreams take me far away into the clouds when I’m supposed to be listening to a lecture or something. But at least it’s kinda fun?)
I tend to wear too many hats at once. Among my skills and passions are acting, writing, drumming, gaming, running, dressing up and creating entertaining multimedia content.
This is what my blog is about.
Sheylara.com is about living life to the fullest and not being afraid of trying new things.

I love entertaining people. I love making people laugh or smile or even cry (in a good way), which is why I inject humour in my writings whenever possible, while retaining the honesty and sincerity that I believe is very important in writings.
