Tennis Champion,Serena Williams,35 who welcomed daughter,Alexis Olympia with Reddit co-founder,Alexis Ohanian penned down a heartfelt letter to mum,appreciating her now that she is a mum as well. she wrote;
‘You are the strongest woman I know.”My exact same strong, muscular, powerful, sensational arms and body. I don’t know how i would react if she has to go through what I’ve gone through since I was 15 years old and even to this day.”I’ve been called man because I appeared outwardly strong. It has been said that that I use drugs (No, I have always had far too much integrity to behave dishonestly in order to gain an advantage). It has been said I don’t belong in Women’s sports — that I belong in Men’s — because I look stronger than many other women do. (No, I just work hard and I was born with this badass body and proud of it).’
‘But mom, I’m not sure how you did not go off on every single reporter, person, announcer and quite frankly, hater, who was too ignorant to understand the power of a black woman.’
‘We don’t all look the same. We are curvy, strong, muscular, tall, small, just to name a few, and all the same: we are women and proud!’
‘I hope to teach my baby Alexis Olympia the same, and have the same fortitude you have had.
Promise me, Mom, that you will continue to help. I’m not sure if I am as meek and strong as you are yet. I hope to get there one day. I love you dearly.’
She signed off with “your youngest of five’. Aww,what a lovely note and her daughter is really cute.
