Hi there, my name is Sharon and I'm 22 years old. I live with my family in Donadea, which is near Clane in Co. Kildare. My brothers are 24, 20 and 16. We also have 2 other children living with us, a foster brother who is 14 and a foster sister who is 7. My Nana came to live with us during the summer of '07 as she is unwell so we have a very very full house at the moment but it makes for exciting times like Christmas and other events when we are all together. To be honest it's a bit mad but that's just the way we like it.
Anyway about me, I love music and have always been singing. I was a member of the school choir and we sang all around Kildare. We also did a stint on the travelling barge in Sallins. Music has been in my family for as long as we can go back in time. My Great Grandfather was a singer and preformed in "The Rialto" and my Grandfather also preformed on stage and was well known in Kilcullen for performing in the Capers. My mother is also involved in singing and is a member of the Staplestown Millennium Choiralong with my younger sister. Finally my younger 16 year old brother is also involved in music and is the drummer in a new up coming tribute band called Fat Lizzy. Music fills our house at all times and is great fun.
I am doing You're A Star because I love music and it's something I've always wanted to do. But it's not about the money and I intend to donate part of the prize money (if I win the competition) to Cancer Research and to the Irish Cancer Society. Our family has suffered at the hands of cancer and at the moment two family members are battling it. This is my way of saying Thank You to the Oncology unit in Tallaght and Naas hospital and to the Palliative Care team in Co Kildare for their wonderful work and their care and understanding to our family. They are wonderful and deserve every bit of help they get.
I'm working in Newbridge in the Whitewater Café Bar with my older brother, who has just become a new dad to a beautiful baby girl, Carolina. He is just so proud of her. But she is beautiful and she is my Niece so Aunty Sharon can spoil her too. I love meeting the regulars who frequent the place I work but I also love meeting the new faces that come in too. I'm game for a laugh and enjoy the craic.
I have a couple of loves in my life, one love is shopping and I have to be so strong sometimes when I see something I'd love to buy. That's the story of my life there. My other love is the animals that live at home with my family. There's Zuko our dog, but he's no guard dog because he'd lick you to death or break your leg with his wagging tail. Our other pets are two tom cats Zig and Zag, they're brothers. They are brown and white and Zig is the skinny hunter and Zag the fat lazy one. We also have two zebra finches and one budgie. So as you can see we're fairly busy with animals, oh and by the way that doesn't include the cows and the hens and ducks. A right Noah's Ark here.
So that's about it, my life as Sharon Condon. Busy but fun. I hope you have a better idea of who I am and I hope you vote for me. As you can see I'm passionate about some things, one hell of a singer and as if that's not enough, I'm great craic too. So come on everybody,
VOTE for SHARON CONDON.
Thanks a million for your support.
