Help Emma Phillips stay in China

Published: 4:35PM Monday June 17, 2013 Source: Seven Sharp

23-year-old Emma Phillips is not your usual Kiwi girl.

She’s in love with the circus – and has become New Zealand’s only foot juggler, spinning carpets, parasols and even tables on her feet.

She’s honing her craft thousands of miles from home at a famous acrobatics school in a small town in China.  

Her dream is to join a group like Cirque de Soleil.

She’s spent close to $20,000 of her own money training in China – but now she’s running out.

It costs $1000 a month for her to stay at the school – and she’d love to be there until the end of the year.

If you want to help Emma you can donate as little as $10 through her Pledge Me account.
