I spoke at the grand opening of Michelle Obama’s new sports club! & I still can’t believe I was FLOWNN OUTTT to Chicago to do this! To interview and host the panel for these incredible female athletes at the Michelle Obama Tennis Center in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Title IX 
So many girls have just been funded for fully funded tennis programmes for summer thanks to the amazing brands who attended and supported this event. 
(Title IX is a groundbreaking gender equality law that was put in place 50 years ago to fight against exclusion from the sport based on sex & gender; part of the Education Amendments)  
I’m just HONOURED to even have my name mentioned in rooms like these!!- and to be able to find ways of feeding girls education and empowerment in everything I do!
