Natural with a JOB: Venus Williams

When you read that title, you must spell it out - J - O - B! Does it ever feel to you that the only 'celebrity' naturals you see are always either models, actors or singers? It sort of feeds the mentality that natural hair is only acceptable for some. Well here to bust that myth wide open is Venus Williams - 5 time Wimbledon Champ.

TV was never big in my house but tennis was something that everyone loved (anyone remember Zina Garrison?). I grew up on a steady diet of Venus Williams as a hard working, super aggressive and hard hitting tennis player. Her work ethic is admirable as is the fact that she has interests outside of tennis.

She also happens to be natural! Here she is in a recent ESPN interview, still living her life by her own rules and still so funny! If you want insight into her world and want to see her natural hair, here it is!





In the event it was not clear by the obvious gushing, yes this is a Venus Williams fan zone. Thanks to @jaimuziq for showing me this video! :)
