Shania Twain’s Childhood Story is Heartbreaking

Luckily for Shania, and all of her fans, she found a way to separate herself from the battles happening in her home. She turned to singing and songwriting.

“I wanted to escape,” Shania Twain said. “[From] everything. Violent home. Tensions. Nothing to eat. When you’re hungry you can’t do anything about it but distract yourself from the hunger. And it really works. It’s therapeutic. A lot of kids play with dolls and I played with words and sounds.”

Goodness. Shania Twain is such a strong and resilient person. It’s amazing that she was able to overcome so much and not let it crush her dreams.
