You create your destiny. Hard work, dedication, sacrifice and taking risks create amazing opportunities.
I will forever fight, performing like it's my last show. And I will love every minute of it.
Every time I dance, I'm trying to prove myself to myself.
You can start late, look different, be uncertain and still succeed.

- Misty Copeland, first Black principal dancer for the American Ballet Theater.
