As one of the greatest and most accomplished athletes of our time, Serena Williams is rightfully unapologetic when cataloging her many triumphs. With a whopping 23 Grand Slam singles titles, a myriad of doubles trophies, and four Olympic gold medals under her belt in addition to cultivating her own fashion brand, Williams is no stranger to success. From getting married to giving birth to her daughter and bouncing back on the court in a way that her haters promised she never would, Williams owns her fierceness like a badge of honor.
"Being strong is never easy," says Williams, fully aware of the decision she makes every morning to persevere amidst a sea of adversity. "Not in this world we are living in.... Standing up for yourself is not going to be easy, but it’s always eventually respected. Those are the people who’ve made a difference in this world, people that stand up for what’s right. If you look at history, those are the people that you really remember. And at the time, oh, my God, it seemed impossible.”
Eager to inspire the next generation of young women and athletes with her impressive worldview, Williams' Instagram account is a living testament to her greatness. Living her life boldly and without reservation, Williams is just as powerful on social media as she is IRL.
