Celeste from My Friend thinks I’m Super Mom Blog tagged me in a post which I’m only doing now (I know, I suck at schedules even though I try really hard to stick to them). I’m delayed, but I thought this would be a great post to start celebrating 2-years of blogging!

Get to know me – Shan Vijendranath

First Photo shoot

First Photoshoot for my birthday.

1. Are you named after someone?

No, my dad (passed away when I was 8) thought Shanêy was a unique name but the truth is many people have no idea how to pronounce it. People end up calling me “Shane-nee” instead of “Sharney”. The spelling is different and the ê changes the pronunciation. I wish I had an easier name to pronounce – so I just shortened my name to “Shan“.

2. When was the last time you cried?

Uhm, I feel like crying almost every day and I have no idea why! I’m so emotional at the moment. I think it’s because I’m trying to balance work, being a wife and 2 kids.

3. Do you have kids?

Yes, a 3-year-old daughter named Kitana and a 2-month-old son named Kiaan.
