Misty Copeland knows criticism is part of being a ballerina, but she’s sick of the criticism focusing on things she can’t change.

“As a dancer, when you’re put in front of the spotlight and an audience, it is a subjective art form. Not everyone is going to like you,” she said during the interview. “But it’s hard when you’re being judged for things you can’t control, like the color of your skin, or the type of body that you have.”

Check out the video below of her explaining why body type does not matter.
