Serena- The Myth, The Legend, The Woman...

People have called her a powerhouse, a threat, a tiger and this is just on the tennis court. The story that you're all familiar with is that she grew up in Compton with her sister Venus and their father pushed the two young girls to tennis stardom. But, you've all heard the girls from the ghetto rags to riches story before and to be honest, that's not this story. To focus on such a trivial part of Serena's life story would be robbing you of the whole story.

How do you talk about Serena and not mention tennis? The woman serves the ball faster than any other in the sport's history, except perhaps her sister. She's a Gold Medalist in the Olympics, she's won a title in all four Grand Slam tournaments, 28 singles championships, 11 doubles championships and countless others. She's fierce on the courts.

But, Serena is more than just a hellcat in tennis shoes. She's a designer and has her own line, Anereas, featured in Style magazine. She's an actress and has appeared in "ER", "My Wife and Kids", "The Division" and has done voice overs for "The Simpsons" as well as a reality show with her sister. She is a co-founder of Mission Skincare and has worked to develop her own Pomegranate Lip Balm with SPF 15, of course.

She's an incredibly inspirational woman and often shares her tennis knowledge with at-risk youth, visiting hospitals and schools and through The Owl Foundation, she is able to help fund programs that address learning problems for individuals who experience academic failure. She may just be that powerhouse threat of a tiger after all or she may just be my new heroine!
