    She started ballet late (13 years old), she has the "wrong" body based on ballet standards (she has big breast, larger hips and she's very muscular) and lastly, she was the first African-american to ever enter this company.

    1) She started ballet at age 13. Which for a female dancer to be successful is very rare.

    2) She was the first female African American dancer to make Principal in ABT.

    3) She is great at marketing herself and has brought ballet more mainstream.
