Seven-times world record holder Marawa Ibrahim was once told she didn’t have what it takes to be a performer. Today, she holds world records for the most hoops spun by an individual and the fastest 100 metres in high-heeled skates. Marawa works with hundreds of young women around the world through her award-winning hula-hoop troupe, The Majorettes.
