My name is Shay and I am 13 years of age, on the internet I am more commonly known as ‘silvershay04’, ‘mangojuicekid’ and possibly a few other names. I live in a small town called Lowestoft which is the most Easterly town in the United Kingdom, it is part of Suffolk County in England.
I am a first Degree black Belt in the traditional Korean Martial Art of Kuk Sool Won and have been for just over 2 years, I practice 3 times a week, Monday, Friday and Saturday – My lessons are 1 hour long but as I have recently completed my “Junior Black Belt Leadership Programme”, I help out in the classes before mine (which are also an hour long). In order to complete my Junior Black Belt Leadership Programme, I had to assist in 68 classes which are all 1 hour long sessions and also complete a variety of written exercises in my log book. I started at the end of January (2012) and finished in early October therefore I completed it in approximately 9 months (using exact dates). After completing all of these requirements, we were asked to produce an essay on why we like being a black belt and why we want to become instructors.
I am interested in Math, Technology, Gadgets, Computing, Design and Photography. I have lots of technology and gadgets including a very powerful laptop and a variety of Apple products such as the new iPad 4 with Retina display and the new lighting port which charges the device much faster than the previous 30-pin connector, but back to the topic on hand; For photography I use my Lumix FZ45 DSLR camera and I have won many photography competitions with it. To edit my photos and make designs etc, I use Adobe Photoshop CS6 along with lightroom and bridge, to edit my videos shot with my camera I use Sony Vegas Pro 10.0.
As you may know, I have been blogging for a few years now, and I have only recently changed over to wordpress, the blog where it all started is right here:
