The first African-American soloist at the American Ballet theater in 20 years. Not only a major talent but she has a big heart, When not on stage, she spends her time advocating for and working with youth.

"If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?"
“Take care of the youngest and the oldest in your community, and everything else will take care of itself. I was watching this documentary about this isolated community in either India or Africa. When the old people would lose their teeth, the younger members of the community would chew their food for them to keep them healthy. Now that’s devotion. In America, we’re afraid to sip out of the same straw.”
