I knew what it felt like to not be wanted, to not have a dream, to not know what inspiration was, to not know what hope was, to not know if I was going to be alive the next day. I thought it was finally my turn to do what I wanted and what makes me happy ~ Michaela DePrince

Michaela DePrince was born in war-torn Sierra Leone during the country’s decade long civil war. A series of events lead to her living in an orphanage with fond hopes to one day become a ballerina. “I wanted to be happy,” recalls DePrince; she drew inspiration from a magazine featuring a ballerina not simply because she was dancing, but because, “she looked happy.”

She was adopted by an American family who recognized her talent and determination and enrolled her in ballet classes. Today, DePrince dances with the Dutch National Junior Company with the rank of Grand Sujet for the main company.
