Pretty Brown Dancers Honors Class of 2017: Mikaila Ware, Florida State University

In an effort to promote positive images and further bring inspiration to young girls, Pretty Brown Dancers not only are featuring dances of color but honoring those who are graduating high school and college. For weeks, we have asked several high school seniors and final year college students to submit their pictures and academic achievements. To kick off this special, we are featuring Mikaila Ware, who will be graduating Magna Cum Laude from Florida State University. Check out her biography and her beautiful graduation pictures captured by photographer Savannah Lee
