More about me:
In the Spring of 1995 I began the journey of becoming a certified lifeguard and swim instructor and then got a job at the YMCA where I took my first lessons in 1985. It was in 1995 that I noticed something…I was 1 of 3 Blacks that worked in the pool area and that the majority of the people that I taught did not look like me.

I went on a mission. My mission was to show that ANYONE could learn how to swim no matter their race, colour, and/or cultural background. This is when I coined Live. Love. Swim!.

I continued to teach at the local YMCAs and Jewish Community Centers, but I realized that I had to reach out to those who may not be able to afford the membership of these facilities. This is when Live. Love. Swim!, LLC became “Your source for at home swimming lessons”.

I have a PASSION for educating and swimming. With these passions Live. Love. Swim!, LLC became provider of private swim lesson and semi-private swimming lessons for infants, children, and adults not just in the United States, but globally (UK, China, and Nigeria).

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mrsstellaabudheir@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
