  • ... before sharing a touching open letter to her mother

    Dear Mom,

    You are one of the strongest women I know. I was looking at my daughter (OMG, yes, I have a daughter) and she has my arms and legs! My exact same strong, muscular, powerful, sensational arms and body. I don't know how I would react if she has to go through what I've gone through since I was a 15 year old and even to this day.... Read the rest on my @Reddit profile. Link in bio.

    I was really nervous today - I played my first ever tennis match AND (forgive me if i sound a fancy show off) it was at BUCKINGHAM PALACE! With pro @andrewcastle.
    I didn't win, but it felt good to go out of my comfort zone and met lovely people. So I encourage you whatever it is in life, big or small, sometimes it's good to do something when we're a little bit afraid. #selfworth @princestrust
