Misty Copeland faced a lot of rejection before finally making it as a soloist for the American Ballet Theatre. She was told she had the wrong body for ballet. Also told she was too old at 13 to be considered.
Her pure grit and determination and sheer will got her where she is today. She is now the face of a new ad campaign by 'Under Armour.' Her story has gone viral. I can see why. What an inspiration.
