Misty Copeland started ballet at the age of 13. She was very passionate about ballet. Misty didn’t go to a ballet school or anything because she was poor. The only reason she started ballet was because there was a free lesson in a gym. Misty kept practicing ballet and got invited to a ballet school. Then she got accepted to an amazing ballet school with 80 students. None of the students were African , but she didn’t let that stop her. Misty Copeland got a serious injury, but bounced back. She is now the first African American to have the leading role in a ballet. I think Misty Copeland is a great role model because of all these reasons.
I learned what a introvert, extrovert, and ambivert is from The Power of Quiet. An introvert is someone who isn’t that social and an extrovert is someone who is social. An ambivert is someone who is a bit of both. I also learned how a kid named David (an introvert) ran for class president verse the most popular girl. David won! This shows that even though David is an introvert he can still try and be social. Their are also tips to follow to lead a successful life. I never thought people would use them, but think twice! We also filled out a sheet after reading the article. It asked if you were an introvert, extrovert, or ambivert. I think I’m an ambivert because I like to be social, but I also like to just sit down and read. Because of this I’m an ambivert.
