To honor Hispanic Heritage Month, Fox News Latino has teamed up with the Ailes Apprentice Program, and our very own Alicia Acuña, to bring you this special series featuring inspirational people inside the Latino community.

Taba Mulenda is the first Latino to become a lead animal trainer for the Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey circus.

Maluenda exemplifies the passion and fearlessness of the Hispanic community. He is a sixth generation circus performer, but unlike many of his acrobatic ancestors, he makes his living in a tiger’s den, putting his life on the line every day to reach for his dreams.

Watch his incredible story above.
