Eight times world-record breaking hula-hoop star Marawa Ibrahim was told that she was too chubby during her teenage years to succeed as a performer. 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. The first book in a new series about growing up has been written for young girls becoming women, who need not feel alone on their journey to womanhood.

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.
