“She was born in Compton. I was born in Trinidad, the most southerly island in the Caribbean. She was raised to become a tennis superstar. In high school, my tennis instructor quietly took my parents aside and let them know that their child was ”more of an academic.” But now that we’re both grown women, for the first time I can truly identify with Serena Williams.“
So begins my first ever article published on The Root! Titled Serena Williams, Big Butts and the Painful Path to Self-Love, it’s all about having a big booty and learning to love it (and the rest of your body).
It was a difficult piece to write, so I really hope you like it. It would absolutely mean the world to me if you’d read and comment on The Root – please click here to do so. I hope to do more of this kind of writing soon – so watch out now! I’ll be sure to keep you posted on my articles wherever they appear!
