Serena Williams has been appointed as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

“Serena Williams isn’t just a world tennis champion, she is a champion for children — and a passionate advocate for providing every child with a quality education,” said UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake.  “We are delighted that Serena is joining us as UNICEF’s newest Goodwill Ambassador and look forward to working together to win for children.”

“I believe all children deserve the chance to make something of their lives,” Williams said. “I am committed to helping UNICEF provide a quality education to children to help them build a brighter future for themselves, their families, and their communities.”

p.s. have people completely forgotten how she acted at the US Open 2011 and how she simply shouldnt be a role model?
