Misty Copeland; A Role Model for Girls EVERYWHERE


“I think its great to have something that seems so pure to me…I think its important to have something like that in this crazy world”

— Misty Copeland on ballet

I’m almost positive everyone knows who Misty operand is and if you don’t then after this week you do!  Misty is a ballet dance with the American Ballet Company and has been promoted to Principle Dancer, the first African American dancer in 75 years!

In her younger days Misty was told no! that she couldn’t be a ballet dancer because she did not have the body for it and she was to old to get started.  She is the perfect example of not letting no deter you from what you want and with enough are work and dedication you can achieve any goal!

HEY LOVES – I’M DANIELLE or DANIE – THE LIFE LOVING GIRL BEHIND XOXODANIELLEMONE! I’m currently 28 years old and I live in Orlando, FL with my husband Jeff + our fur baby Bleu (like the cheese), a Blue Nose Pitbull who you can follow on Instagram at @greeneyedbleu. I share our life together and my style here on XOXODanielleMone and on Instagram. I definitely love the colors pink, orange and yellow and all things style but I also love: a great cocktail, home decor, fresh flowers, and spending time with my family (hey mom!).
