Who Is Helen The Foot Juggler?

Helen the Foot Juggler from America’s Got Talent is a former Ethiopian gymnast who went on to China on a scholarship, one of several championship gymnasts worldwide invited to study there. She learned after arriving that it was a circus scholarship, not a gymnastic one. This is how she learned the art of foot juggling.

Helen bought into the new role and went to Germany to continue her new circus career and then to the Middle East.
