The graceful (to say the least) Misty Copeland posed for Net-A-Porter’s The Edit magazine to talk about her inspiration career path that lead her to the American Ballet Theatre (ABT). Fans of the dancer know how unique Misty is for joining a majority white ballet company with only 80 dancers. Based in New York City, Misty is the first African-American female soloist at ABT in more than two decades, a title that she doesn’t take lightly or with ease.

“My goal is to set a positive example for minority dancers; to make it easier for them in years to come,” she said about her role as a 30-year-old soloist. She also discusses her road to success and passion for dance. On her upbringing: “My life did not consist of extracurricular activities. It was literally just living and struggling to get by.”
