Young orphan Michaela found a picture of a ballet dancer in a magazine and knew that she wanted to dance. How could this be possible for a child living in an orphanage in Sierra Leone, Africa? Soon after being adopted by American parents, Michaela began ballet lessons. After many years of hard work, her dreams came true and she became a professional ballerina.
