They Called Her ‘The Devils Child’ but That Didn’t Stop Her from Turning into THIS
Michaela DePrince did not have an ideal childhood. She was
born in war-torn Sierra Leone and became an orphan at a young age. The children
in the orphanage were labeled 1-27 and she was 27, the least appealing child to
adopt. She suffered from a skin condition that made her skin appear spotted and
they began saying she was the child of the devil.
When Michaela was four she was FINALLY adopted! She showed
her new mom the photo of a ballerina she had and told her that’s what she
wanted to be. Her mom encouraged her and Michaela is now the youngest principal
dancer with the Dance Theater of Harlem! It just goes to show you that ANYTHING
