CircEsteem has made me a better person. I’ve learned from my circus team to put trust in others and to earn other people’s trust. I’ve learned by conquering my fear of the trapeze, that even if you don’t like something at first, you should always give it another try. I’ve learned through juggling, my most challenging skill, that with lots of hard work I can do anything. Most importantly, I’ve learned through CircEsteem MD, performing at hospitals, that everyone needs a smile, and circus always brings that smile.
