Misty Copeland – Ballerina
The WILL to follow no one
Misty was first introduced to ballet on a basketball court of a Boys and Girls Club in the LA area. She didn’t fit the standards of a typical ballerina and was rejected by many ballet academies. Years later she is a soloist for American Ballet Theatre.
Lindsey Vonn – World Champion Downhill Skier
The WILL to tune out external pressures
Gold medalist and four-time World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn knows what it’s like to sit on top of the world. Even though she’s been skiing since she was 7 years old, her trek up hasn’t always been easy. On the path to recovery from her second knee surgery, Lindsey is determined to conquer the mountain many more times.
Sloane Stephens – Pro Tennis Player
The WILL to stop talking and earn it.
To be young, full of energy, and in the world’s spotlight can be both a blessing and curse. Having frequented the semi-finals of several major international tournaments, Sloane Stephens knows the pressure of living up to the public’s expectations and choose to live life on her terms.
Kelley O’Hara – Pro Soccer Player
The WILL to find inner strength
A gold medalist and collegiate standout, Kelley O’Hara knows what it takes to overcome challenges and never give up. Originally a reserve for the 2011 Women’s World Cup team, Kelley managed to get herself onto the pitch and ended up being one of three U.S. females to play every minute in the 2012 Olympics.
“You have the wrong body for ballet,” Copeland was told.
