Throughout her childhood years, Veronica Jean has always displayed an interest
in music and the arts although she is quick to point out she was humming tunes
even at the early age of 2. She often took to singing whenever the opportunity
presented itself whether it was for private family gatherings, birthday parties,
formal celebrations, or charitable events and programs. School activities were no
exception earning her the “Most Musical Student of the Year” award throughout
her high school years.
Next to her love of music is her passion for drawing. She has won several
private and public-sponsored drawing contests during her elementary years,
even winning a 4-day all expense paid trip to Cairns, Australia from Continental
Airlines sometime in 2004.
