I started being trained from Grade One. I don’t attend any private classes. My school teacher is the one who trains me. It was my teacher Ms. Angelica from Lyceum International School, Kandana who first recognised my talent.  I am also a part of thechurch choir of Kithu Arana in Ragama. I really enjoy being a part of that group.

My favourite song is Speechless. That is a song from the movie Aladdin.

 Whom do you want to thank?
I want to thank my Ammi and Thaththi for being with me all the time, Ms. Samitha, and my teacher Ms. Angelica for all the support they have given. But most of all, I want to thank Jesus for the beautiful voice
he has given me.
