Original Air Date: July 21, 2012
I discovered Lauren Von Der Pool a few months ago while researching diet tips for vegetarian athletes. Lauren, who was just named one of Essence Magazine's Young, Gifted and Black women under 35, is the personal chef to Venus and Serena Williams. As fantastic and (F.A.B ulous) as her life is today, it pales in comparison to her incredibly inspiring story of resilience and perseverance. After spending the hour with her, Lauren Von Der Pool has earned a top spot on the Green Lioness' list of S-HEROs.
