Talking to Allure, Serena shared the secret to balancing her marriage and her career, “Oprah said, ‘Never let anyone dim your light.’ That really stuck with me. Alexis doesn’t dim my light. He puts me in the light, even if I don’t want to be. He pushes me to further points I never thought about.”

“It always was something that I could see in some relationships — my light would be dimmer. Now I feel like I can shine really bright and still do everything that I want to do.” Serena adds.
