Is there anything Serena Williams can't do? 

The superstar athlete made history earlier this week when she became the first person to wear cornrows on the cover of Teen Vogue. She also rocked a voluminous coral top and sleek gold earrings.

"We put cornrows on the cover of Teen Vogue for the first time in the publication's history," the magazine tweeted. Williams was featured in conversation with new editor-in-chief Lindsay Peoples Wagner and gun control activist Naomi Wadler.


Serena Williams is a bona fide icon. 

She totally kills it on the tennis court, and she's also an amazing mother. 

Now she's breaking yet another barrier by being the first person to wear cornrows on the cover of Teen Vogue.

This is definitely MAJOR. 

For the cover story, Williams spoke with 12-year-old activist Naomi Wadler and the publication's new editor-in-chief, Lindsay Peoples Wagner, about power, activism, and #BlackGirlMagic.

And it was a really powerful, inspiring conversation. 

On balancing hectic, jam-packed days, Williams said: "I go to bed every night thinking, How did I get through this day? I'm sure a lot of people out there can relate, right? It's like, this day is over, it's 10 o'clock, I got through it. How did that happen? That's kind of how I am." 

She also dropped some wisdom when it comes to the idea of perfection: "I think it's really important to realize that no day is going to be perfect. For me, that's really hard because I strive for perfection, and I feel like everything I do has to be great and has to be perfect, because I am a true perfectionist. But that's impossible. That's not reasonable. Then I realize that, OK, I had a rough day today, let's do something to make it better tomorrow."

Williams also mentioned that she would like to learn how to code. "In my next challenge, I definitely want to learn how to do some coding," she said. "I think that is really important for me, especially in my business, because my fashion brand is all online. It's never too late to start. That's something I want to do."

Many people were loving all of the truth bombs dropped in this piece.

And black women, in particular, loved seeing this level of representation (finally!).

The ultimate GOAT if we ever saw one. 

Hopefully this is the first of many diverse and inclusive covers to come.
