Why did you decide to partner with Kingswim? I’m really passionate about encouraging parents to enrol their children in swimming lessons. It’s so important that children take lessons consistently throughout the year, not just in summer, for the best opportunity at becoming strong, safe swimmers.
Why did you start swimming? My parents enrolled me to swim after they saw how jealous I was of my older brothers’ swimming lessons!
Something people don’t know about you: I once thought about giving up swimming for good! It was during my early teens, but boy am I glad that I kept at it – now I feel stronger and fitter than ever.
