Love!!! ✨ @michaeladeprince for @papermagazine @justintmoran Photography: @jasperegan Words/Interview @willahbennett Art direction @official_rebrand Makeup @vika_yourman Styled by @willyumbeck Assisted by @chloejpolikoff Fashion @alessandrotrincone ✨ “Born in the midst of a decade-long civil war in Sierra Leone, Michaela was abandoned at an orphanage by her uncle after the death of both her biological parents at age three. It wasn't until she was adopted by an American family in New Jersey that she was given the space to dive deeply into dance. ‘It's more than just wanting to be a ballerina,’ she tells me. ‘[Ballet] is part of who I am. I grew up not feeling good enough and thinking that no one would ever love me enough to be adopted.’ She jokes, ‘I literally chose an art form that fosters the same sort of you're not good enough environment.’”
