''The generous support of donors made it possible for me to attend this extraordinary School. Moving from Toronto to Montreal to start a circus education wasn't easy. With no support from my parents, I was on my own. Fortunately, I received scholarships through the Foundation's program, which meant I could focus on my studies without having to stress about money.''
