Please share this post on your Twitter, Facebook, or wherever appropriate. Reblogging would be great as well. Although, if you don’t do any of the aforementioned, I won’t hold it against you, but I really needed to ask.
Some of you may know about my propensity in my former life for encouraging young people, specifically teens. I was a high school teacher and even the Youth Director at my church. I also supervised and managed dozens, if not hundreds, of college students over the course of a decade in a management job I had as a data analyst.
I don’t really have those opportunities now but I can be supportive in other ways. Back during the early days of my Haiku Challenge I had a partner who helped come up with the words from time to time. Her name was Sian the Haiku Girl.
Well, Sian isn’t a little girl any longer. She’s very much a teen and well, you can just see and hear the rest for yourself.
This being #WednesdayWisdom, I can’t think of anything more wise to share with you than the talent of Sian Mei and ask that you follow her on her various platforms. Every young talent, young mind, young creative, and young spirit needs the world’s love, support, and encouragement to go for their dreams.
We are so focused on hoping people follow our own Twitters and Instagrams and like our latest whatever we put out there, that we forget sometimes to do the same for those we like. We listen to their music, watch videos, or read posts and we forget to do the clicks at the end, even though we mean to. I do it all the time and often try to remember who the person was so I can go back because I thought what they shared was really funny.
All the voices you hear on her recordings are her own. She does her own harmonies. She hits those high notes and the lows. And she is not electronically engineered to sound amazing. I’ve heard live performances as well, and some of them might just rival the ones below.
I’ll be keeping y’all up to date on her career. I consider her a friend and me as a fan, maybe her biggest.
Here are Sian Mei’s various platforms to follow as well as a SoundCloud song and a Youtube Video to check out.

Sian doesn’t just record in English but Korean as well. The song below doesn’t require Korean to enjoy the sound of her voice and the music. It’s her cover of the BTS hit Euphoria, more upbeat and you get to actually see her recording her vocals.
