As reported by Cleveland CBS affiliate WOIO, Shaker Heights (Ohio) High School teenager Laylonie Dowdell danced alongside the Cavaliers girls during a recent home game, just more than a month after she first raised complaints about a coach who was body shaming her.

Complaints from Dowdell and her mother, Lakessa Taylor, led to the resignation of a Shaker Heights assistant coach and paved the way for her continued involvement in cheerleading.

Now that hobby comes with pro experience, something she may never had dreamed would come her way.
