More about me:
Have always loved the sport of swimming and what it has given to me. It has taught me patience, understanding, defeat as well as achievement. I started swimming when I was only 4 years old in Saudi Arabia. The only place to play was at the pool. My parents told me in order to play I had to learn how to swim. The rest is history. I have now been swimming for 24 years and am very involved in the sport still today through coaching, mentoring and more. I can't wait to see where the sport will go from here.
