Shakira lives to love


Added 22 December 2012


SHAKERA KING can hardly be found sitting still. This busy 25-year-old mum of two works as a cashier. She loves to travel and does so at every opportunity, but she also has her sights set on becoming a student of natural sciences. “I have always somehow had an inclination for science. I never even had to try really hard at school, I was always near the top of the class when it came to sciences,” she said. In her spare time Shakera loves to play with her two children and enjoys taking them to any area where there is physical activity. “I think parents need to spend more time doing fun things with their kids,” she remarked.
