If I could earn a living teaching swim lessons to all ages I could bring about great changes to the world. Primarily it would lower drowning rates. By learning how to swim and conduct ones self around water, a person greatly reduces the risk of panicking and drowning in swimming pools or oceans. It would also lower obesity around the world. By being more confident in the water and adept at swimming, children and adults will be keener to head to the pool and shed some calories while having a good time. In order to accomplish this goal, I plan on taking 3 steps. First I will obtain a Water Safety Instructor certification from the American Red Cross. After taking the class, I will search for and apply at a pool that provides swim instruction. My next and final step is to begin teaching swim lessons to all ages. This is how I intend to change the future of the world, especially mine. The most important thing that I do is continuously spread the message to the world about how knowing how to swim can save lives.
