_What do you do when the President of a swim foundation asked you to collaborate? You say YES and let things unfold. I am glad I said yes to Shawn Slevin's question that day still wondering what could possibly come of it. Today we are friends, help each other out, refer and link each other and I gained respect for what The Swim Strong Foundation is doing to strengthen the self esteem of young people, giving them skills that are not written in day to day school circular. The picture shows a proto type of the foundations logo made by Imelda, the Cameroonian woman who makes our beautiful glass bead necklaces When Imelda made the bracelets for the Swim Strong Foundation she crafted a bridge between my swimming friend directly with Cameroon/Africa.
