WHAT WOULD SURPRISE LISTENERS THE MOST ABOUT YOURSELF?
I LOVE TO SING!!! I am shy, like really shy, at first. But when I warm up to you, look out!!! lol….. also, I still collect matryoshka dolls, I am a songwriter, and play the piano. I listen to music almost all day long, I could read a book if its a good one from front to back, in a day or two, depending on how long they are and if time permits me too. I don’t like to Parallel Park. I love to travel!!! I celebrate my birthday all month long…. JANUARY is my month and I am an AQUARIUS!!! I am short like five feet tall. I don’t like wearing slippers cause of my height oh and standing next to super tall people isn’t fun. I am also kind of addicted to social media…. especially instagram you can find me on IG @maelanmusic lol…..
