Irina is The Aqua Life’s first Swimmer of the Month! She is a fantastic 9 year old who decided that this year was going to be the year she learned how to swim!

Stephanie: When I met Irina for her first lesson she was uncomfortable even putting her face in the water. After just 6 lessons look at her now! Irina is joyful, naturally curious and unbelievably determined. There were a few times when she looked at me as if to say, “Do I really need to do that?” But then she would go ahead and do it anyway!

It was a joy to watch her swim on her own for the first time. The look of pride on her face was priceless! When I asked her why she had wanted to learn how to swim, she had this to say..

Irina: Well, when I was younger I only wanted to play around in the water, but then all my friends learned how to swim and I wanted to learn too. I wanted to be able to go to pool parties and stuff and play with my friends in the water.

Way to go, Irina! Keep it up! You are on your way to a fantastic Aqua Life!
