I’ve spent ten years of my life with that never ending aroma of chlorine perfume. With the stench comes an incredible sense of comfort. The pool is home to me, it’s the place where I can forget everything else and focus on myself. Every pool is a challenge and it’s another opportunity to reach my goal. Without swimming I would have never known how to make the best out of dreadful situation, how to enjoy little moments in life, and how big my dreams can be. For the years to come, swimming or not, that perfume will stay with me.
