I started swimming in 2017, and from my first try-out, I was interested in being in the water.
We need to have a strong body for stamina and strength. It is important to me as it will keep me healthy and active, especially during the pandemic. Most importantly, it will benefit me in the future since My dream is to become a pilot.
My inspiration was when I saw swimmers participating in the Olympic games and told myself that someday I would participate in swimming competitions.
My parents and my whole family are supporting me all the way. Hence, I will continue to strive and do my best to achieve my dream.
