Shanaira Shatique “Nay Nay” Selden was born on May 17, 1994 at 11:47 PM at Carolinas Hospital Systems, in Florence South Carolina. Many of the nurses there said that with her perfect little nose and her head full of hair that somehow formed bangs and sideburns, she was the most beautiful baby that they’d ever seen. Growing up, her mom recognized that her spirit inside matched her beauty outside. She never got into much trouble and even as she progressed into adulthood, she kept that beautiful spirit. She was educated at several school districts, the latter being Jefferson County Public Schools and Clark County, Indiana. Before her death, Shanaira decided to go back to school to complete education started at Sullivan University before the death of her son. Her greatest joy was being a mother and it showed in the relationship that she had with her precious beautiful son. She was preceded in death by her son Ayden’s Lamont Ingram in April 2018. and also her little Sister Shakayla, and Grandmother, Margaret Sells. They’re now together...singing.
