Mikalia Martin
Mikalia Martin, a stand-out for The University of Houston's Track & Field team, became pregnant in her junior year at the American Athletic university. Martin was scared about her future as an athlete, but looked to Serena Williams, as they happened to be expecting at the same time, to inspire her journey forward. Martin was able to rely on her university, coaches, and family and welcomed a healthy baby girl into the world who has beared witness to her mom competing at the NCAA championship, the Olympic trials, and now at her May 2022 graduation ceremony.

After the 2020 season was canceled due to COVID19, the world was ready for her appearance in the much anticipated 2021 season. On February 11, 2022, Williams had her triumphant return, less than one-year postpartum, with her husband and son supporting her in the stands.
