Irene was in school choir on and off from grade 4 to grade 11 and has always loved to sing. She later learned to play guitar just to sing to it. Her inspiration? Her dad. Irene begged her parents for a guitar the Christmas she was thirteen years old after seeing her dad play. She got one that year and was self-motivated enough to teach herself to play just so she could sing and play along with her dad. After going 3 years without the time to play at one point, Irene picked it up again and has not been able to put it down since, writing and recording her own music and performing in talent shows and for her community church. She currently records music using a podcast unit in her own bedroom. She still bonds with her dad through music every time they spend time together.
