    Sheila has a wonderful story that she tells about how she came to the United States in 2000 and shortly thereafter, began studying the piano and taking voice lessons, and within just a couple years, she took a shot and pursued working as a model and actress. She "took the bull by the horns" (as I like to say) and went off into various, yet specific directions, but all within the field of entertainment (if you had to categorize it under one umbrella). Her story is very uplifting and will give you a great understanding of the potential that lies within us all, if you just look at what you have (within you) and keep moving in a direction that allows you to use and implement the things you love most and keep learning more and more .. so you can keep improving and growing.

    I'm a voice actor, actress, comedian, singer and writer. As an actress I have an IMDB page and some of my favorite work is using my acting skills to train interviewers, journalists, and medical staff how to handle difficult situations.
