Misty Copeland is shredding the stereotype of what it means to be an elite athlete. Since signing an endorsement deal with Under Armour she has become the face of the company, showing the world that it takes just as much hard work, sweat, tears, and dedication to be an elite ballerina as it does to be a main stream pro athlete.
On September 21, 2014 fans of all kinds turned out to meet Copeland at an Under Armour autograph signing at Macy’s Herald Square in New York City. There were sports fans, artists, and dancers of all ages there to meet her and she met them with her always welcoming smile.
When Copeland was younger she was told that she could not be a ballerina. She was told she was “too short”, “too athletic looking”, and “just not good enough”. However, she shattered those stereotypes to become one of the best ballerina’s in the world. Her story transcends dance, art, and sports and cuts right to the heart of what motivates us all. It’s not what others say we cannot do, it’s what we believe we can do despite all the odds.
