    Shanaya Singh

    Storyteller

    Mahadevi Birla World Academy, Kolkata

    A world record holder at 7 years of age – for being the world’s youngest storyteller and author – that’s Shanaya Singh. It wouldn’t be wrong to call her a prodigy, especially when you consider her mesmerising storytelling skills. She not only tells the stories in her signature way but also distils the essence from them. Coupled with the props she creates herself (with a bit of help from her mother), the voice modulation and sound effects, hearing her tell a story is truly a treat! Shanaya makes it to the 18 under 18 Special Mention category for her storytelling. She started telling stories from a very early age, and though it would seem otherwise, she does this without learning the stories by heart. She also recites short stories she has written herself with the same enthusiasm. While she is quite animated when telling stories, at other times, this little wonder has a certain calm and poise about herself which is very rare in one so young. She is soft-spoken and quiet, and quite imaginative. During the pandemic, when schools were shut and people were stuck at home, Shanaya wanted to start an online reading centre and a virtual club so that kids could read and be immersed in the world of stories without stepping out of their houses. With help from her mother, she has taken the first steps towards making this dream a reality by starting her own YouTube channel, which she uses to tell stories in her inimitable style. She is also a published author in magazines, online and offline, and her motto is to spread a culture of reading among children through her storytelling. Shanaya is also popular in her school. Her teachers are very supportive of her endeavours and encourage her at every stage.
