Michaela has an extraordinary life story. She was born in Sierra Leone in 1995 where she was orphaned during the civil war. Adopted by an American family and inspired by a picture of a ballerina she saw while in Sierra Leone, DePrince trained as a ballet dancer in the U.S, performing at the Youth America Grand Prix among other competitions. She pursued a professional career overcoming obstacles related to prejudice against black ballerinas. DePrince was one of the stars of the film First Position. Her book Taking Flight is to be made into a film directed by Madonna.

Following her dream hasn’t been easy, but Michaela says. “I want to inspire other girls who wish to pursue ballet.”
