Tennis Star Meets Her Hero

Some dreams do come true! Especially for one York Prep student, Summer Chandler, who was lucky enough to meet her idol, tennis champion Serena Williams, at an event for Nike.

Williams was speaking to dozens of young women from New York City tennis clubs when Serena noticed Summer’s “S” shaped necklace.

As you can imagine, her reaction to having Serena complement her was one of excitement, shock, and disbelief. We just love Summer’s reaction!

Additionally, Essence Magazine has put the spotlight on our rising 7th grader with a wonderful write-up that highlights Summer’s love of tennis, her natural competitive edge, and how she stood out in a crowd to catch Serena’s attention.
