Today she is one of the most solicited circus performers worldwide, having worked with fashion power-houses Diesel and Kenzo. Contained within these pages are 50 lessons, anecdotes and stories about the changes Marawa experienced in her own body during puberty, written in consultation with Doctor Janice K Hillman.
