Mary Temple Grandin

You’ve probably heard the story that Einstein - whose name is synonymous with genius - didn’t seem destined for much when he was a small child. He was years behind other children when it came to learning to talk, he did horribly in school. It seems that Einstein’s brain just worked differently than most other people’s. And many people these days are saying that Einstein was probably autistic - one of them is Temple Grandin.

Misty Copeland

Ballerina and author of the instant New York Times bestseller "Life in Motion," Misty Copeland, drops by the studio to discuss her unlikely story of becoming America's most famous ballerina.

A natural born talent, Misty Copeland was able to do numerous variations almost instantly. Of course, being a black ballerina presented many obstacles for Misty to overcome but following other ballerina role models she was able to forge her own path and become the first black ballerina to become the "principal ballerina" at the prestigious American Ballet Theatre.
