Confident and disciplined through swimming

I had swimming lessons with Angela from the age of 3.  From my very first lesson she instilled a love of swimming in me and with her encouragement I joined a swimming club at the age of 9, but we continued to meet over the intervening years so Angela could help me work on my technique.

Being a competitive swimmer gave me fun, excitement, opportunities to travel, many great friendships, a school scholarship and finally coaching qualifications.  I feel swimming turned me from a shy and quiet child into a confident, disciplined teenager with a sense of purpose and a very definite sense of achievement, and I will always be grateful to Angela for setting me on that road.
