What swimming taught me about life

The first and only time I remember getting drowned was sometime in 2004/2005, I and some of the other top swimmers in my school were invited to a swimming competition.

No, it wasn’t caused by overconfidence I believe, it was just “something that happened”. I was at the end of that lap, one minute I thought I had touched the slab of the pool, the next minute, the cheers and screams from the onlookers were suddenly drowned all I could see was blurry blue, the next thing I was outside the pool.

I am passionate about writing , research , learning and creating new things through storytelling, art and design.
