Black History Month: Serena Williams

Stephanie Ballesteros , Staff Writer

Serena Williams is ranked the 22nd best world tennis player by WTA tennis. She was born in Saginaw, Michigan on Sep. 26, 1981 and has been living here in Palm Beach since 2014 in a community named “Ballen Isles.” Tennis has been her interest since she was three years old, which is when she started her intensive training. However, it’s curious to know that Williams attended the Art Institute in Fort Lauderdale in 1999 in order to pursue fashion design. In 2016, after her 6th win in the U.S Open title, Williams displayed a fashion show at New York Fashion Week. She describes her clothing style as “easy fitting, yet bold, edgy and contemporary silhouettes.” Serena Williams does not want to play tennis forever; she is deeply interested in the fashion life.
