About Me:

I found my passion for water sports at a young age and I have since taken up swimming and sailing at competitive level. Since then, I have represented college east in the swimming team and won numerous awards for different events. My latest medal collection will be an in-house Navy Biathlon which i came in 3rd in the open category. I have also represent Team Navy in the SAFSA Swimming Meet. I started coaching swimming and sailing at a tender age of 17. It was a challenge at the beginning given the little experience I had then, but that did not put me down. Thus far, I have experience with teaching people of different ages, nationalities and abilities (including children with special needs). “I love watching the kids get excited any time they accomplish a goal and to see how much they love being at Able Aquatic School. I love how everything is new and exciting through every child’s eyes, they make me appreciate how great life is. I derive my job satisfaction from the progress that my students make.” I am glad that my liking for children enabled me to move this far. The sense of satisfaction I have when i see this students going home with a new skill and smiles on their face, I have never looked back since.
