You Go Girl! Michaela DePrince - featured in documentary, First Position, by director Bess Kargman
Ballerina Michaela DePrince escaped a war-torn childhood in Sierra Leone and became a professional ballerina in New York.

Dancer: Michaela DePrince "To watch us dance is to hear our hearts speak."- Hopi Indian Saying
Inspired by a picture she found and kept while in Sierra Leone, Michaela DePrince trained as a ballet dancer in the U.S, performing at the Youth America Grand Prix among other competitions. She pursued despite encountering instances of racial discrimination: Aged eight, she was told that she couldn't perform as Marie in The Nutcracker because "America's not ready for a black girl ballerina", and a year later, a teacher told her mother that black dancers weren't worth investing money in.
This girl competed in the Youth of America Grand Prix and one a scholarship to ABT.

Michaela DePrince (b. 6 Jan 1995) is a Sierra Leonean-American ballet dancer. She grew up as an orphan in Sierra Leone during the civil war but in 1999, at age 4, she and another girl, Mia, were adopted by Elaine and Charles DePrince from New Jersey, and taken to the United States. Inspired by a picture she found and kept while in Sierra Leone, DePrince trained as a ballet dancer in the U.S. DePrince has cited Lauren Anderson, the first black American principal ballerina, as her role model.
Michaela DePrince <3. Her whole life is an inspiration to all who hear her story.

Michaela DePrince. Fell in love with this gorgeous ballerina when I saw the documentary First Position. She's a stunning, graceful, charming dancer and a strong, inspirational young woman. This girl is taking names, defying odds and breaking stereotypes. Love her.
Michaela DePrince is one of my biggest heroes. She's been through so much and yet has still become one of the most amazing dancers of our time! Though I know I will never dance professionally, she is a huge inspiration for me.

(Face claim: Michaela DePrince) Hi, my name is Anne-Marie King, I'm 14 and I am a ballerina and an artist. I am from Sierra Leone. Dancing is my passion, and people say I am really talented at it, even compared to people in this school. Art is a way for me to express my feelings. It is like an escape from reality

Michaela DePrince born amidst war in Sierra Leon adopted into the USA, she wants to open a school for the arts in her birth country. http://www.jackandjillpolitics.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/michaela-deprince.jpg
"Michaela Deprince does not look like the 'typical' 17-year-old ballet dancer. At 5’4″, she is shorter and more muscular than most ballet dancers. She is also from Sierra Leone and all three of these are noted “problems” (with the admitted race and body type issues in ballet) for someone who just wants to dance. But that isn’t stopping her at all. (via How This Orphan From Sierra Leone Became A Famous Ballerina | Madame Noire)." #contest #vitaminshoppe So inspirational!

But that isn’t stopping her at all." --Madame Noire Such an inspiring story. I totally feel her pain about having a less than perfect "ballerina body" and still being so passionate about ballet. I wish her all the best in her aspirations to see how far her talent can take her! What I would give to do the same...
Spectacular! MichaelaDeprince #dance #black women
