Venus Williams Pens Inspirational Post To Empower People On Their Wellness Journey
Williams is one of the first female athletes to redefine the world of women’s tennis, leaving permanent marks on the game with numerous achievements that made the 42-year-old an icon.
Aside from being a record breaker, the Lynwood native’s exemplary off-court activities caught the eye of millions worldwide, making the Grand Slam champion a role model for women and people of color.
In a recent update on her activewear’s Instagram page, the fashion designer shared a picture of herself rocking one of her brand’s outfits.
The all-white sporty theme consisted of a short-sleeved top and matching shorts designed with a blue drawstring. Williams completed the look by holding a tennis racket and two balls, posing in front of a foliage backdrop.
In the accompanying caption, the Olympic gold medalist implored fans to click on the link on the brand’s bio to learn all about the 11 principles she lived by to be well and live life to the fullest.

In this lengthy message, the ESPN WTA Player of the Year explained that she felt motivated to penn these 11 principles after speaking to the 2021 graduating class at Vanderbilt University on the institution’s Senior Day.
Although the tennis pro was no stranger to having crowds of adoring fans watch her matches, standing in front of 4000 students was a different ball game.

The ‘Game On!’ Star Credited Her Mother’s Teachings In The Fight For Equal Wages
The Blast previously reported that one-half of the Williams Sisters opened up about her mother, Oracene Price’s influence on her for equal pay in tennis.
After making her Wimbledon debut at 16, the then-teenager discovered that male and female athletes were given different wages despite their hard work and competition training.
This tradition did not sit well with the Lynwood native, whose mother had instilled the values of a strong woman in Williams from a young age.
At 25, the WTA champion took matters into her hands by publicly advocating for the wage gap reduction. This campaign took seven years after her maiden Wimbledon victory before coming to fruition.
