My name is Melina. I am 19 years old and only 5ft tall. I am a cosmetologist. I’ve been hooping for 5 years. I also practice aerial silks and I am going to start roller skating. I live in a retired military family so I’ve lived and seen many different places which was an amazing experience.
q & a
Hula hooping – two years and ten months. Strongest skill.
Aerial silks – two years, but haven’t used them too much.
I’ve practiced a little bit of poi.
I practice mostly at parks, inside and outside of my apartment, and whenever I go exciting places. I take my hoops everywhere and try to get at least one video when I go somewhere new and exciting.
September 18, 2013. I saw the video of Rachael Lust hooping to “Thrift Shop” on Facebook and thought it looked fun.
The flow community has touched my life in many ways. Always getting positive feedback from them and advice when I need it. I love being able to go on the Facebook pages and ask questions because there’s always someone who knows the answer. My favorite part is seeing the progress new hoopers make and seeing how everyone flows because even though people may be “similar” we are all different and we all still have a different flow. It’s awesome to see what kind of tricks or combos people come up with and how they do it and how hoopers put their own style to it.
