The first is to provide assistance to youth whose parents and families have been affected by violent crimes. The Foundation will do this by funding and creating programs that will provide counseling, care (foster care and day care), housing, food, and education to youth who have been affected by violent crimes throughout the United States.   The Foundation’s second goal is to assist underprivileged youth around the world in receiving the highest quality education available to them. The Serena Williams Foundation will achieve this goal by providing grants and scholarships to deserving high school students around the world. These grants and scholarships will aid the students in attending college, learning a trade, or learning how they can start their own business so that they can better themselves and the world as a whole.    SERENA WILLIAMS   An Athlete, an Icon   Serena Williams embodies style, power, beauty and courage. Like numerous A-list celebrities, Serena is recognized by the mere mention of her first name. Only 28, Serena has overcome insurmountable odds to win a total of 23 career Grand Slams which include 11 singles titles, 2 mixed doubles and 10 in women’s double in order to become one the game’s greatest all-time players. Her remarkable tennis skills have skyrocketed her to fame, but only her unique charm and drive could explain her successful endeavors outside of tennis in film, television, fashion and philanthropy. Serena has high hopes for the 2010 season after her dominating performance in the most recent Australian Open. Her tennis ability combined with her off -court activity makes her one of the most recognizable names and faces in the world – an icon.   Serena was born September 26, 1981 in Saginaw, Michigan, to Richard Williams and Oracene Price. While still an infant, the family moved to Compton, California where she began playing tennis at the age of four. At nine, Serena and her family moved to West Palm Beach, Florida. Since that time, she has become one of the most dominant figures in tennis.
