She is Fierce: Serena Williams makes Harper’s Bazaar’s Women Who Dare List

Serena Williams had an amazing year despite loosing US Open 
The tennis legend and budding fashion entrepreneur features in Harper’s Bazaar’s “Women Who Dare” list. The “Daring” Issue of Harper’s Bazaar celebrates women who broke the bold and won!
Excerpts from Serena’s interview.
On What Daring means to Her
The spirit of daring defines Williams, a trait so innate that she shrugs it off. “Daring to me is taking a chance but not doing it blindly,” she explains. “A very calculated chance.
On Who She finds Daring and taking “smart” risks
Think of amazing women like Sheryl Sandberg and Oprah Winfrey—they’re daring, but they’re not jumping off a building without a parachute, you know?” Again, this perspective comes with growing up. “You have to be smart about it. You can’t be afraid to be a pioneer and take a chance and speak up and just be bold.” Williams characterizes her tennis game as “built around chances. I don’t know any other way.”
