In my early twenties, I fell in love with the idea of swimming, but my parents insisted I swim in the pool.
My older sister and I didn’t know how to swim, so I took my sisters classes, then I went to swim with my brothers and sisters.
After one of our classes, I had a dream.
I remember thinking, “Wow, I really want to swim in this pool.”
It was very surreal to have this opportunity to swim.
I felt like this is where I belong.
Then I was sitting there, watching my brother and sister, and my body started to feel so strong.
When I got home, I was still in shock.
It felt like I was a little girl, and it was just so surreal.
I had never been in the water before.
I was totally freaked out.
When my family saw my body in the ocean, they were just like, “I don’t think that you have ever been in that pool before.”
My mom and dad were just so proud of me.
My dad and mom both were in the swim class, and they were like, ‘What the heck is going on here?’
“My mom was like, “‘You are doing it again!
“I was just like “Oh my God.
“I knew I had done it.
The day after my swim class ended, I went out with my brother to go to a restaurant.
I got in the car and got into the car, and we went to the restaurant.
My brother had his back turned and I was looking over my shoulder.
I thought I was going to die.
Then we went inside and I remember the place was empty.
When we were inside, my mom was sitting on the couch and I saw that I had swum the pool twice before.
My mom’s face went completely blank, and I thought she was dead.
My heart was pounding and I could barely breathe.
My sister was on the other side of the couch.
She was looking at me with tears in her eyes.
I just sat there, crying and thinking about my brother.
She got in my car and drove home, and that was the last time I saw her.
I started swimming again when I was in high school, and then I started going to swim classes again, but it was different this time.
My body felt strong.
I started swimming more frequently and I started getting better.
I finally started competing in high-school swims, and the coaches were like “Wow.
You are just swimming again.
You have a great body!
“The coaches had been watching me, and at first I was scared to ask questions.
Then, they told me, “You’re swimming again, you’re just going to be on the pool team.”
So I asked the question, and one of the coaches, she was like “Yeah, but the coach has to tell you how to handle yourself when you swim.”
I started to know that I was the best swimmers in the world, and now I have an incredible confidence in myself.
It has helped me become the person I am today.
During my swim lessons, I would say, “If I have to do anything, I am going to do this, and when I’m done, I will tell my coach that I have swum.
I am confident in myself.
“At that time, my coach was like that was going too far.
She told me not to worry about what people think, but that I needed to do what I had to do.
When you have confidence in yourself, you don’t need to worry.
Swimming is a sport.
You need to do the exercises to be strong, and you need to be confident in your own abilities.
It is not about being strong or strong-looking.
Swimming is about getting into the water and getting in.
Swimmers need to know how much weight they are putting on their bodies, and if they can handle that, they will be great swimmers.
My first swim lesson was in elementary school.
My teacher was like my mom had a lot of confidence in me, so when I asked her what was going on, she told me I was swimming a little bit too fast.
She told me to slow down.
I looked at her like, What the hell are you talking about?
She was like I know you’re a swimmer, and this is what you do.
I think I was like a little kid, and she was saying this.
I did this in front of her.
I really didn’t care about my body at all.
I don’t have any self-esteem.
It’s like a big weight on your shoulders.
It was like me being an outcast.
Then one day, when I went home, my swim instructor came over to me and was like what are you doing?
You are so confident.
I told her, “No, I’m
