Misty Copeland battles ballet school expectations and emerges victorious
Misty Copeland, in this advertisement for Under Armour, dances in the face of rejection from a ballet academy; she was too short, her bust was too large, her torso length was off, and she was 6 years older than most other ballet professionals.
And get this - she is the third ever black soloist in the history of the American Ballet Theater.
Her quote: "Success isn't handed to us. We earn it."
