The world is buzzing over Naomi Osaka. It's not just because she's a tennis superstar and two-time Grand Slam winner, but also because Osaka has sent a critical message about Black Lives Matter and racial justice at the U. Osaka has been playing while wearing masks with the names of Black murder victims on them, including Trayvon Martin, George Floyd, and Breonna Taylor. If you're not a tennis fan, this might be the first time you've heard her name—but Naomi is a badass. She was raised by her father to excel at tennis and followed the trajectory of greats like Serena Williams before actually beating Williams in the U.

To become global brand ambassador is truly a dream come true for me.
Naomi Osaka is at the top of her game. She just won her way to the Australian Open finals after beating Serena Williams in straight sets and, if she wins on Saturday against American Jennifer Brady, she will secure her fourth Grand Slam title. And who will be cheering her on through this match, just as he has throughout much of Naomi's success?
