About Shayling

Hi :) My name is Shayling and I am currently attend Loyola University of Chicago and I am double majoring in Neuropsychology and Art and minoring in English. I was born in ChongQing, China in the province of SiChuan and spent a couple years in Japan (Therefore I am bilingual in Mandarin Chinese and English). When I was 5 I moved to Wyoming for 4 years, then spent the rest of my life in New Jersey until college came around; that's when I packed my bags and moved here to Chicago to attend college. Now here's some fun facts about myself: In 2007 when I was about 9 years old, I performed piano at Carnegie Hall and won an award. Shortly after, I struggled to figure out my true passions while simultaneously dealing with quite a lot of unfortunate events, and therefore rounded a corner to depression. Instead of letting depression drag me down, I used it as a fuel to push me towards success. I started writing my first novel when I was 14, signed a contract with PenguinGroup publishing company when I was 15, and just a year ago I finished writing my 480 page novel and am currently in the process of trying to transfer my book to HarperCollins before I begin the publication process. Not only am I passionate in writing, but I am also passionate in art. I completed my art portfolio for college a couple years ago and that art portfolio managed to get me into Art Institute of Chicago with a 54k scholarship.

I have an affinity for the arts as well as human expression. The chaotic emotions I've felt at one point in my life as a child allowed me to direct my entire being into improving myself as not only an individual but also as a contributor to society. So for a while I asked myself "what are you going to do with the talents you were given?" That's when I decided I wanted to share what I have. In my sophomore year of high school I volunteered to teach Sunday school at my church for a year, and during my senior year of high school I spent the second semester teaching art at "Art Collaborations" in Princeton, NJ. Just this summer, I spent the entire summer teaching English at MTGK Institute in Texas.

Professional experience aside, I have many hobbies that further shaped my skills. I spent most of my life engaging in theatre. Acting and Singing has always been a passion of mine. But due to traditional parents, I never had the change to pursue them. So in secret, I joined the school choir, joined the school play, and tried out for "The Voice". Furthermore, I supported my younger sister (11 years old) in her desire to act, and recently she landed a role in "The Americans" TV show on FX. You see, I am a walking ball of passion, expression, and desire. I long to make a difference in the world. And by doing so, I start with the little steps like helping each and every one of you. I hope to not only assist but also to inspire each and every life I touch. An ancient Greek philosopher named Plutarch once said "what we achieve inwardly will change outer reality." I believe very much so in that statement. And I hope I am given a chance to help positively change every individual's realities no matter how small or big the impact might be.

Feel free to contact me for tutoring lessons or anything else, even if it's just to have someone to talk to :)

Chinese

I graduated from Chinese School in Plainsboro, NJ in 2014. I was born in China. I speak Chinese to my parents on a daily basis.

I got a 5 on my AP Chinese test in senior year of high school.

None of my family apart from my parents and sisters understand any language other than Chinese so I am forced to be fluent in it to be able to communicate with them.

Drawing

I took 2 years at Sharron Art Studio in New Brunswick, NJ I got a 5 on my portfolio review. A link to my art portfolio can be viewed upon request.

I got into Art Institute of Chicago with a 54k scholarship. Currently one of my majors is Art with an emphasis in Drawing and Painting.
