Shakira is a member of The Daysi family: Esther, Jessie, Shakira, Costa, and Idrine (click names to view profiles). Their mother and father divorced many years ago and her mother remarried, but neither fathers are apart of their lives. In December 2020, their lives took another heartwrenching turn as their mother suddenly passed away after giving birth to their sister, Idrine. The baby's birth came suddenly, and sadly, they were unable to make it to the hospital in time. The children are now living with their grandparents who are older and rely solely on piece works for support, and baby Idrine is staying with and being cared for by their aunt.

Shakira is 10-years-old and will be starting in Standard 2 next year. She loves math and playing netball, and she hopes to be a police officer when she grows up.
