May Swimmer of the Month April 28, 2011
Preksha is our swimmer of the month for May! Preksha swims at our SafeSplash San Jose location as a level 2B. Her favorite thing about swimming lessons is holding her breath underwater. It’s her favorite activity now but when Preksha first started she was particularly nervous about putting her face in. Getting over her fear was easy once she trusted her instructor. Now she is working on much more difficult skills, like big arms and side breathing. Her biggest accomplishment thus far is being able to do her back float all by herself for 20 seconds!! She is looking forward to conquering diving next!
Our future scientist turns 6 this month! This summer Preksha is traveling to Chicago with her brother to see their Aunt and Cousins. Her favorite season is summer because it is hot! When Preksha grows up she wants to be a scientist who experiments on cows’ eyes. During our interview she did have some advice for all the swimmers out there who are having trouble with their back floats: “you are not allowed to pick up your head while doing back floats, otherwise your body will sink, and you have to keep your belly button pointed to the sky.” Perfect advice! We wish Preksha all the best this summer and a joyful trip to Chicago!
