shaizy's poetry performance at afl giants game july 2017
Expert from Shaizy's Instagram: In the face of fearlessness, I reeled up all the courage to speak the words that my soul lives and breathes with, words from 'the one' or my higherself. I don't know, but sure do they give me goosebumps every time I speak them. This day, on 29th July, I performed my first ever public poetry performance at the AFL GWS GIANTS Multiculturalism Event organised by Gandhi Creations
I got tees made for everyone with the words 'Expand Thy Love' and with these beautiful young adults who proudly wore it across their chest. I say Yeaaaah show them your #giant chest and big #heart to all those nasty, mean, berating comments people make about culture, religion, separating nations, diving us and killing us. Be courageous little ones, be bold, be warm, be love become love, show love and stand up for love and acceptance. After all, we all breathe in the same air in which the source resides. The more we feel, recognize and love our inner self, the closer we become with it. And in harmony with the universal truth and the universe.
In this photo, Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh, Jew and Atheist and me (spiritual) stand together, hug together, love together and we bonded forever.

"Designer Shaizy Singh brings back lost art of bespoke shoe making"

A SYDNEY-BASED designer has rediscovered the lost art of traditional bespoke shoe making after living around the world.
Based in Darling Harbour, SY Shoes is already making a name for itself as a unique design studio, creating some of the most versatile and internationally inspired footwear found in the city. Even though she is only 25, entrepreneur Shaizy Singh has developed a passion for the ancient art of shoe design. ‘‘Each SY shoe is handcrafted using the finest leathers by local families of artisans who have been dressing the feet of royals for generations,’’ Ms Singh said.
‘‘I only started doing this not too long ago, but my passion for footwear began when I was 19 and I did a lot of travelling. I lived in Canada and France and moved around a lot exploring different cultures.
‘‘I met people and every single one of them had the same problem — they owned these beautiful shoes but they were all painful to wear."
‘‘I wanted to create something that could be both beautiful and comfortable at the same time.’’
‘‘When I came back to Australia I was really focused, I studied a design course with local artists and I went to India and worked in factories, and I built up a big network of contacts in the shoe industry from all over the world, especially at fashion trade shows,’’ she said.
