Brittney Griner writes letter to Joe Biden pleading for help in obtaining freedom from
WNBA star Brittany Griner is still being detained in Russia since February after customs officials allegedly found cartridges containing hashish oil in her luggage. Now after a day in court she is still being held and it seems there is still no more clarity on if and when she will be able to come back to the United States.
She expressed those feelings in a letter she wrote to President Biden in which she says “… as I sit here in a Russian prison, alone with my thoughts and without the protection of my wife, family, friends, Olympic jersey, or any accomplishments, I’m terrified I might be here forever,” Griner wrote.
“On the 4th of July, our family normally honors the service of those who fought for our freedom, including my father who is a Vietnam War Veteran. It hurts thinking about how I usually celebrate this day because freedom means something completely different to me this year.”
“I realize you are dealing with so much, but please don’t forget about me and the other American Detainees. Please do all you can to bring us home. I voted for the first time in 2020 and I voted for you. I believe in you. I still have so much good to do with my freedom that you can help restore. I miss my wife! I miss my family! I miss my teammates! It kills me to know they are suffering so much right now. I am grateful for whatever you can do at this moment to get me home.”
Hopefully they can figure this out and get her home.

The closest person in age to RiRi on that list is Kim Kardashian who at age 41 has a net worth of $1.8 billion.
But RiRI now holds the title for the youngest self made billionaire in the United States.
And you can add new mommy to her many titles as well.
