WATCH: Inspiring Commercial Is a Testament to Perseverance

Posted August 1st, 2014 @ 4:02pm

Wow. This is awesome.

Under Armour kicked off their female-fronted campaign with this commercial showing Misty Copeland, a soloist for the American Ballet Theater.

Misty Copeland started dancing at 13, which I guess is late for ballet. (I only did one year of ballet when I was 5, so I don't know anything.) The rejection letter in the commercial is one Misty actually received. Obviously, she didn't listen: she went on to become the second black soloist for the American ballet company at age 24.

And even though she's a ballerina, she looks like she could kick your ass!
