Misty Copeland stands at a mere 5 feet 2 inches, which is considered quite short for a ballerina. She began her training in ballet at age 13, which is considered a late age to start.

Her story is remarkable as she no doubt endured many obstacles before becoming the 1st African American woman to be named principal dancer with the American Ballet Theater.

Yet, it was Misty’s determination and perseverance that allowed her to achieve her goals.
An inspiration for all girls, young and old.

If you believe it, you can achieve it.
