Hello friends! We all know Serena Williams as one of the most decorated athletes of all time!
She is a role model and inspirational woman with a positive message. I watched her TED Talk when it first came out and to this day, one part of this clip runs over and over in my mind.
While I encourage you to watch the entire clip, I wanted specifically to highlight one portion (it’s just a minute and a half starting at 15.20 – 16.40) where she talks about body image and not being comfortable as a teenager, her turning point of appreciating her body and her message to all girls:
As long as YOU are happy with yourself and your body, it doesn’t matter what anyone else says. She says, “I’m OK as long as I love myself.”
I hope you remember this positive message.
