My name is Gigi Paonessa and I am a Charlotte native. I started my aerial journey 2 years ago and would not trade it for the world. The circus community has helped mold me in so many ways. I have become comfortable in my own skin, and comfortable being me. I have met so many people along the way that have helped me become the person I am today. Without the circus community, I would be lost. I wouldn’t have a creative outlet or be able to express my emotions. I think it is important for everyone to find their own creative outlet.
Circus is for everyone.
