But then she launches herself into the air, flipping her legs out and connects her palms to the floor. Her legs open and send her feet behind her head.

People in the room burst into applause.

Maesi’s mother, Jaime, was behind the camera. She told Cosmopolitan that the clip was recorded when Maesi was first “new to the whole LA scene.”
