Shay, who has a bachelor's degree in electrical and electronics engineering, told Avigilon, “I have always enjoyed math and physics. My brother studied engineering in school, and I remember one day he came home with a project and it was an autonomous car — and that was it! I decided to study engineering."
In a International Women's Day piece for her company, Shay opened up on her close bond to her mom. She said, “The strongest and most hard-working woman I know is my mother. The biggest lesson she taught me was to be independent and fight for the things I want in life. She is the reason I fight to be the best version of myself, to be kind and to never give up — because, despite all the hardship, she always smiled. She is my hero."
It is unknown how John and Shay met. He is currently in town to shoot his new film “Playing with Fire.”
