Shanilou is a free spirit in the world on her own journey. She believes that we need to heal the world like Michael Jackson said and that all the world's a stage like Shakespeare said. She believes we all have a role to play in making the world a better place and hers is on a beach island with a tropical climate; at least for the moment!
