Under Armour Gets It: Misty Copeland Shows Her Ballet Dancer Athleticism

How many of us have been told ‘we weren’t good enough’ for some reason or another? Many of us and it’s what you decide to do after that defines your character. Misty Copeland is a beautiful, athletic ballerina who doesn’t fit the ‘model ballerina’ body build and was rejected from a prominent ballet program because of it.  She obviously used it as fuel because she is now a very accomplished ballerina who still has a very athletic body. Under Armour  Women recognized that and very smartly showed us women how their amazing gear at work on an athlete.   This ad is from UA’s #IWillWhatIWant campaign. Straight up dope!

Have you ever been rejected and had to prove you were worth it? Do tell!
