She understands very little of her native Nanai language despited her grandmother's coaching. Her grandmother said Shasha has fainting spells and has heard voices - typical chracteristics of potential shamanic abilities. However, Shasha has little interest in her traditions, and prefers doing math and watching TV with her best friend Lena.
