Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina
by Misty Copeland
"It's morning, eight a.m., to be exact. My alarm goes off for no more than five seconds before I sit up to stop the nagging sound."
Misty Copeland is exhausted and aching and has just as hard a time getting up in the morning as I do even though I am not a ballerina.
