- Michaela DePrince, as you may recall, is the Sierra Leone-born ballerina whose journey from an orphan – shunned for her vitiligo – to an internationally renowned ballerina, has captured the attention and hearts of dance lovers around the world.

- By age 14 she starred in a documentary, First Position, as she competed and won a prestigious scholarship to the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School at the American Ballet Theatre.

- Today, at 20, she's a member of the Dutch National Ballet as a coryphée. (A ballet dancer ranking above a member of the corps de ballet and below a soloist.)

- Her ultimate dream is to inspire young girls and open a school in Sierra Leone.

- MGM has bought the film rights to her memoir Taking Flight which was published in October 2014.
