Serena, like the “black” tennis player.

Eugene, OR.

I grew up in a hispanic house hold and I remember whenever someone would ask me what my name was and I would reply. But when I would tell them my name they would stare for a second at me then my mom and say “oh like the tennis player,” …no like my name my parents parents named me “Serena” for a reason not because they like a tennis player.
