Shania Twain biography

Shania Twain was born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, on the 28th of August 1965. Then she was known as Eilleen Regina Edwards.

A few years later, her parents Clarence and Sharon, divorced. She took the children up the north to Timmins, Ontario, where she would marry a Native Canadian named Jerry Twain; he adopted Eilleen and her two sisters, Jill and Carrie Ann. After they married, they had two more children, first Mark, then Darryl.

The family grew up in relative poverty and her mother, Sharon, was often depressed. Sometimes they would join the local native reservation to hunt for food, usually in the winter months when no work and no money was coming in.

They often ate things that her friends and schoolmates didn't dream of eating. But they would have starved if they didn't eat stuff like deer and partridge. And in Redbook magazine in 1999, She Twain talked about what it was like back then, "Most kids feel inferior if they don't have the right jeans on; I was way beyond that. I was worried about what was in my lunch. Nobody knew we were hungry, so I did everything possible to hide it." Shania Twain would often take bread with mustard on it just to make it appear that she had lunch, terrified that the authorities would find out and take her away from her family.
