Today's Amazing Children

Meet Shamesha

Shamesha

Tall and slender, Shamesha has a model’s physique and the expressive eyes of a movie actress. One of this teen’s favorite past-times is to dress up with her friends, piling on the accessories and practicing poses in front of the mirror. “It would be so awesome to be a model!” she says.

She also loves to sing and dance. During her interview, this outgoing teen broke into an impromptu rendition of “This Little Light of Mine.” A big fan of R&B chanteuses Beyoncé and Ciara, Shamesha is looking forward to visiting a water park in Georgia. For now, she’s busy planning for her upcoming birthday celebration at Boomers.

This bubbly teenager has a lot to say and sometimes gets so excited about sharing her thoughts that it seems as if her words can’t come quickly enough. In addition to her dream of becoming a model, she dreams of having a permanent home with a big family. “I’ve got 16 foster sisters,” she says proudly. “I’d love a big family with lots of little brothers and sisters!”
