LEYLAH FERNANDEZ CREATING A PLACE FOR HERSELF

Make room for the new tennis star Leylah Fernandez. The Canadian-Filipino has advanced to the US Open's Women's Singles semi-finals. She's only 19-years-old and has won against No. 5 seed Elina Svitolina, making room for her in the next round of the US Open. The incredible part of her story is that she's an unseeded player. She may not be seeded and inexperienced but her dedication and commitment is showing through every win. Fernandez has surely created a place for herself every round. Fans are loving her at the Arthur Ashe stadium this summer.

POWER THOUGHT

Don't allow anyone to define you or create your identity for you! Make a statement and make it known who you are! You are called. You are chosen!

"But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light." - 1 Peter 2:9
