American Ballet Theater's principal ballerina Misty Copeland faced her fair share of difficulties in the dance world.

Now at the peak of her career, Copeland does not take her opportunities for granted. "I’m going to continue to be who I am and my experiences as a Black woman have made me who I am," she told ESSENCE. "All of a sudden now that I’m in this position, I’m not going to say, ‘I’m just a dancer.’ It’s a huge deal because I’m a Black woman. That’s why it’s a big deal.”
