Not only has she been in a music video with Beyoncé.

Well, let's just stop there.

Imagine being in a music video with Beyoncé. We can't, no matter how much we dream. That's already most people's life goals nailed.

Anyway, she's also one of the best tennis players of all time, she just won the Australian Open, while pregnant. Yeah, pregnant.

Versace + baby bump = ultimate fabulousness.

And the 35-year-old looks like she's just getting started.

At the end of last year, she penned a marvelous open letter, urging women and men alike to strive for gender equality in pay and more.

News broke on Wednesday that Serena was taking her first step into the world of tech.

Her fiancee Alexis Ohanian, is a cofounder of Reddit, which could be a reason she's moving into this industry.

She announced on Twitter that she was joining the board at Survey Monkey, which is a free questionnaire and survey tool.

It looks like she's definitely practicing what she preaches, since her first move was to create a poll on Survey Monkey.

She asked in the poll:

'In recent years, we've made progress in closing the gender pay gap in professional tennis. How much progress, if any, has there been where you work?

'This position gives me a new platform in Silicon Valley, and I have a lot to say. What are the important issues you'd like me to focus on first? (check all that apply)'

This came with the options: 'Breaking down barriers', 'Training for excellence', 'Competitive fire', 'Organisational strength and agility' and, 'Other'.

She then asked:

'The baby and I are doing great! Do you think I'll have a girl or boy?'

And finished with a comment box welcoming any further input.

Silicone Valley has been notorious for its sexism and pay inequality and it looks like Williams is all up for shaking things up.

Because no-one ever accused Serena of being a wallflower.
