Q: How much has your family contributed to the change as Shanaya Abigail?
My mum was very much involved with charity works while I was a kid, and she had always busy with her work. She was not around as much and we miss that individual attention that normally gets from the parents. I was always a daydreamer to move around the world. The procrastinator in me not allowed me to settle for less. I was always looking for opportunities to grow and that drive leads me here. If you have the exposure it teaches you not to keep yourself isolated from the world. I always believe in the importance of being out there in the world.
Q: Shanaya, I think your parents had separated, did you miss having a male influence because of it?
True. Not having a father figure creates a certain vacuum and make any kid feels incomplete. But once you learned to live according to your circumstances, it doesn’t make much difference.
