Sacrifice For The Dream

After it became clear to everyone that Misty Copeland had a rare and natural gift, a very tough decision had to be made in order to let her follow her dream.  The decision was allowing Misty’s ballet teacher at the time, Cynthia Bradley to become her guardian in order for her to have full access to her training during the week which resulted in her only spending weekends with her family. Although the decision was rough, in the long run it benefitted Misty and allowed her to hone her skills that made her a star.
