Mighty Michaela

Another day, another accolade for the ever-awesome Michaela DePrince!

Michaela was just named one of Women in the World‘s 25 Under 25. To which we say: Duh.

Still, considering that the list also includes Oscar-nominated Beasts of the Southern Wild star Quvenzhané Wallis and fashion blogger extraordinaire Tavi Gevinson—pretty impressive!

The timing is fitting, too: Michaela is about to perform in NYC for the first time with Dance Theatre of Harlem, which she joined last year. New Yorkers can catch DTH at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater next Thursday-Sunday. And Michaela fans in Tampa, Baltimore, Philly, D.C. and several other cities can see her during the last leg of DTH’s tour, which runs through June.

Congrats, Michaela!
