I would GiveLessons. Drowning is a leading cause of unintentional death worldwide, especially among children under age four. From 2009 to 2013, the United States alone had an estimated 5,600 people that were treated in emergency departments and an average of 3,880 victims of fatal drowning accidents per year (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). If I were able to make a living by teaching children how to swim, be conscience and cautious of their surroundings in the water it would change the world; by altering the numbers of death by drowning and may even eliminate any crude racial stereo typing.
I love to swim most but, also to be active and healthy. I believe the best and most fulfilling way to release endorphins or any stress is through activity. Having been a native of the East coast, African American and involved in many different activities and sports throughout my adolescent years, a friend from Detroit bestowed me the nickname “SportLynn”. With this name I dream of hosting a modest-sized island, like Brooklyn, summer camp. I look forward to welcoming children and adults of all ages, races and creeds to come, stay, visit, and be active. Camp SportLynn will offer lessons for everything athletic; including lessons of water safety and survival. The way to achieve this dream island is to put my education first. I have set goals to complete my AS and obtain my certificate in Medical Radiography, at Loma Linda University, twenty-one months from now.
