Two-year-old cheerleader - level 3
Two-year-old Zee-shee Garcia has become an Internet sensation in her home country, the Philippines. On Facebook, a single post of her performing a cheerleading routine has received more than 29,000 views and 433 shares.
The young cheerleader's parents said they started teaching her how to balance before she turned one, and were surprised at how easily she followed instructions. Zee-shee would watch and imitate videos of her parents’ routines from when they were cheerleaders as students.
Thanks to the Internet, her acrobatic stunts have earned her fame. She’s been featured on national TV, and was invited by local politicians to perform at events.
"The way we train her is to make it seem like playing. She listens, she's amused, and she really enjoys it. If she didn't enjoy it, we wouldn't do it, and she wouldn't be able to perform those stunts.”
A talented toddler indeed, with an undoubtedly cheery disposition.
