Misty Copeland Covers September Issue of Essence

Misty Copeland has snagged the cover of the September issue of Essence!

The ballerina, who happens to be the first African American ballet dancer to take the lead role in Swan Lake, looks absolutely stunning as she poses on pointe! In addition to that great achievement, Essence also notes that Misty also has a new role on Broadway in the play On The Town, has signed a contract with Under Amour, and is now engaged to her long time boyfriend.

With so many accomplishments at only 32 years old, Misty is having an amazing year. I would say that she deserves it with all the hard work and training she has put in to reach her goals. Goals do not happen without a plan and hard work. Misty gets added to the list of people that young African American girls should look up to or admire.

Make sure you grab your copy ladies and gentlemen!!!
