90&9 Organization (0:00:00) Can you imagine what it would be like to train with a Mexican circus troupe in a tent every day, tumbling from the ceiling on just a cloth ribbon or dancing on a trapeze? Being a circus performer is what every kid dreams of but Darla Day actually lived it. Circus performing might be more than what we pictured growing up, though. It’s not just happy clowns and cotton candy… despite living her dream, Darla also felt burdened with that sadness and self-doubt that cripples many of us. That’s when she decided to use her performing talents to help others who struggle with similar challenges in life. Darla Day is a professional model, actor, singer, dancer, and aerialist and joins us to talk about how she’s seen lives transformed through her non-profit, 90&9. You can find the music from her show, "Fighter," on Spotify.
