Serena Williams Gets Wired

“I’m a black woman, and I am in a sport that wasn’t really meant for black people”

The worlds best tennis player, Serena Williams graces the cover of Wired magazine and serves as a guest editor where she talks about equality, gender and race. Read more here

 

“The ball is in your court”

A few quotes from the article:

On dealing with bullies: “When someone’s harassing someone else, speak up!”

On equality and diversity: “We can keep working even more to increase equality — whether it’s making sure to interview black candidates for tech jobs or standing up to cyberbullying or making sure that our technology is designed by all kinds of people. Eventually we’re going to make the world better.”

On embracing positivity: “I started using affirmations as the passwords to my phone and my computer. You should try it. You’ll be surprised how many times a day you log in and have an opportunity to trigger that positivity.”

Serena has been providing raw images for her interviews/covers lately. I like that she is showing what a true black beauty looks like
