Hello my name is Pamela. I started doing circus when I was in grade 9 when Rachel from SoCirC came to my high school, and I loved it. Circus as helped me a lot in my life. It has taught be to come out of my shell, make new friends, open up to new people and to try something new. Even though sometimes I was scared to try some of the stuff and open up, I still tried it and at the end I loved it and learned a lot each time. Thanks to Rachel and Rebecca who are my inspiration, I am still doing circus 6 years later, and it has given me the confidence to try other new things in my life. I appreciate everything they have done, and what SoCirC has done for me in my life. I am very happy to continue to be part of SoCirC and want to help by sharing my input on the youth council, and try to help give other people the chance to do it and benefit from this group in the way that I have. It teaches so much stuff, not just circus, the best part that I want others to experience is the support, and just having a lot of fun! Best experience of my life. Love circus forever.
