She is a good woman but she needs to do one moore thing to influence her young fans the one's who want to play tennis teach them one day when she gets the chance to. Thats what i think would influence her fans to be great tennis players just like her.

Hi Venus,

I wondered if you had any words of inspiration for my daughter who is in a similar situation as you were when you were growing up in your sport.

I'm a single mom and not wealthy, but my daughter has excelled in the sport of volleyball. (very expensive)She is proving to be exceptional in the sport, but it has become very clear to me that she is not getting the treatment she deserves due to me, and what I believe is my outspokenness.

I don't go into tirades or push her like she's a meal ticket. Her drive is purely her own. (I don't mean to sound suggestive) I just want to support her in in every way I can, and I refuse to sit idle when I see discrimination against anyone.

I also happen to be a woman of color and she is blended. I think the comfort level of the predominantly non-colored people is a big part of our struggles.

I don't want to hurt her success in the sport, I just don't know how to explain to her why she keeps getting cut short of her ambitions, without making myself look like the bad guy.

If you have an Perls of experience and wisdom to share, I would be deeply grateful.

Your words would be gospel. She would appreciate and can use any form of positive affirmation at this point.

Thank you,
Single Mom
