How has Misty Copeland become who she is with how she has lived?

Misty Copeland is a very inspiring female. She has gone through what many of us won't in a lifetime. She started of weak but got strong as her life continued.

September 10, 1982 Misty was born in Kansas City, Missouri. Her mother had become a single mom because Misty's father, Doug Copeland, had left the family when Misty was only 2 years old. Misty never met her father until later on in life. When Misty was 13, she joined the boys and girls club. Here is where she met her first ballet teacher, Cynthia Bradley. Cynthia was a big help getting Misty to who she is now. Is Misty never met Cynthia then she might not be the powerful figure she is today. When Misty was 14, She bought her first pair of Pointe Shoes. When a dancer gets her first pair of Pointe Shoes it makes her feel powerful and strong. Every ballet dancers goal in life is to go en pointe and to dance professionally when they grow up. On March 24, 1998 (age 15) Misty won the LAMCSA or the Los Angeles Music Centre Spotlight Award. Winning this award is basically calling you the best dancer in all of Los Angeles. This award also gives you a lot of recognition and winning the award when you had only been dancing 2 years is a big deal. After winning the LAMCSA's, Misty copelands life kept getting better. A few months later misty started to receive multiple scholarships and a 6 week San Fransisco Ballet School Workshop. But Misty life soon took an emotional turn when Misty took her mom to court over the shared custody between Misty's Mom and Misty dance teacher Cynthia Bradley. Though Misty and Cynthia had lost that battle other losses came with. Misty could not make the commute to the boys and girls club and home the amount of days she danced so Misty had to quit dance at the boys and girls club. Misty soon had to find a new dance studio and teacher. 2 years later when Misty was 18 she was now dancing professionally with the ABT or a.k.a The American Ballet Theatre. On August 20, 2004 Misty Copeland had met her dad for the very first time. How sweet.

Misty Copeland didn't live the most perfect life when she was young but now look at how she is. A very succesful african american soloist for the American Ballet Theatre.
