"I'm slowly being able to fly with my aunt, which is a great honor. And to be able to wade in the footsteps of my legacy -Â they all have this special place in the heart of circus," Julia Barreda says.
"When my aunt (Dolly Jacobs) and uncle (Pedro Reis) were looking for someone to assist the magician, they thought of me," Julia Barreda says. "I'm the third generation of performers in my family. I've been performing since 3 years old, and itâ€™s a great honor to perform with my family."
"I toured pretty much all of the U.S., and I got to meet people from all different cultures and make friends with people of all ages who knew these amazing things and were so talented -Â you become family," Julia Barreda says of growing up in the circus. Courtesy photo.
