GLAMOUR MAGAZINE WOMEN OF THE YEAR

Be strong, be fearless, be beautiful. And believe that anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you."
—Misty Copeland on being a "Women of the Year"
“It was important for me not to just glorify the beauty of Misty, but to reveal her inner strength, intensity of focus and generosity of spirit, all endurably vibrant throughout her challenges — within society and her body. I also had the privilege of working with the young women from her original YMCA in Queens, NY, for whom Misty was an example of dreams come true.”
"The way she moved with Misty was unlike anything I'd seen. I'm forever inspired and changed by my experience with Lily. Her vision was to show the world of a dancer, without fetishizing it. For a feminist like me, it was a dream to work with someone with such strong convictions that inform her art in every way."
