Shakira is the third child in a family of five. Their mother and father divorced many years ago and her mother remarried, but neither fathers are a part of the kids' lives. In December 2020, their lives took another heartwrenching turn as their mother suddenly passed away after giving birth to their baby sister. 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 the baby is staying with and being cared for by their aunt.

Shakira loves math and playing netball, and she hopes to be a police officer when she grows up.
