Ballerina, Misty Copeland has already etched her name into history, but her story still continues. Being the first African American female soloist for the American Ballet Theatre in two decades, and reaching critical acclaim in her early teens, Copeland has found a way to expand her brand beyond the ballet scene.
When Misty’s not showing off awesome Instagram photos of her life, the 31 year-old dancer has her own clothing line, M by Misty, and has penned her own memoir and a children’s book. Praised for her style, beauty, and of course her ballet skills, Misty Copeland found fame while following her dreams, and continues to inspire other young women chasing what seems to be an impossible dream.
