Sure, she's an accomplished athlete (the greatest ever, actually), pal of Beyonce and a designer. But there are still so many other layers to what makes Serena Williams untouchable. In their newest feature, WSJ delves into the Serena that we now know as "a symbol of female and African-American power, a philanthropist, social media influencer, fashion designer and celebrity unlike anyone in women’s sports, who can stand shoulder to shoulder with any icon of her era."
Serena on being different:
“I’ve had people look past me because of the color of my skin. I’ve had people overlook me because I was a woman.... I’m still going.”
On her work within fashion:
“Sometimes people just put their name on something and turn up at the event, and that’s it,” says Wintour. “Serena has the passion and the drive to make it her own, which is so different from many of these celebrities.”
What she's most proud of:
“To be forgiving,” Williams says. “I am proud of that.”
