'The amount of amazing people I've worked with and places and I've been is incredible, I always wanted to work for myself and to do something creative but didn't know what that was. I felt like something was missing but I couldn't quite put my finger on it, and then I found it- Circus! I feel blessed everyday that I can call this my job'- Aurora Starr
