Misty Copeland, Seventeen

“So that’s my message to you: Find your power. Finding my power has at times been difficult, sometimes due to fear and oftentimes due to feeling overwhelmed by the idea of being judged. What I’ve learned is that finding your power doesn’t have to be scary. Instead, it makes you feel free, in control, strong and proud… Ultimately, finding your power means bringing together everything you have in your arsenal – your will and determination, your support team, your ability to absorb constructive criticism and turn a deaf ear to naysayers – to achieve you greatest potential.”

Misty Copeland, Soloist, American Ballet Theatre, quoted in Seventeen Magazine
