Coco Gauff is one of the well-known emerging stars on the WTA tour at this moment. For this reason, she wants to play matches and train as much as possible in this growth stage. At the same time, the 17-year-old is a full-time remote student and learning by using technology during a busy schedule.
However, Gauff believes that technology makes learning easy and plays a vital role in every student finding their passion nowadays. As a result, Coco has collaborated with tech giant Microsoft to provide new technologies to students of Achievement Centers for Children & Families in Delray Beach, where she and her parents spent their childhood days.
“This community has given me a lot, so it’s definitely important to give back,” Coco Gauff said during the virtual conversation with students.
To ensure the student will have to update technology to meet their goals, Gauff has donated some new devices and refurbished the main computer lab and built two more labs in Palm Beach County with the help of Microsoft.
Gauff continued, “Maybe this can give a kid the opportunity to find their own passions. So make your dreams as big as possible because you never know how far they will go.”
