Sosina Wogayehu started funding her circus dreams at the age of 6, selling cigarettes on the streets of Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. After a long international career as a contortionist and juggler, Sosina returned to Ethiopia to foster the rich traditions of Ethiopian circus and share them with the world.
