Hi! My name is Gwen Shahboz. I am 13 years old and I am from Florida. I love drumming because it allows me to express myself using music. When I am having a hard day, I can go over to my drum set and turn those emotions in to something that sounds good. I have been drumming ever since I was four. I started drumming on what I called “the recycled drum kit”, it was made from things like yogurt containers, orange juice bottles, and old tin cans.
I am the drummer for two band, one with my friends from elementary school called the Dark Cherries and the other is a group of friends from high school called Street 11. Along with drumming, I love to swim and this past year I got a chance to complete on the first season of American Ninja Warrior Junior.
