I still remember my early competitive years, when I wanted to achieve a lot more than my confidence allowed me to get. It was not that I was not capable of reaching higher goals, but my lack of self confidence would often get in my own way. One day on a race I figured out that the swimmer next to me had the same capabilities and potential that I had at my disposal. It was just a matter of me choosing to win that allowed me to unleash the best of my abilities. It wasn't until I told myself that I was the one in control when everything came together, as it should have been from the start.
My story is the same story as many young athletes who feel, very deep within themselves, that they can accomplish anything in their reach. However, sometimes it is hard for them to attain their dreams without finding a voice that would give them the proper direction. I found that voice within me a long time ago. Now, I just want the opportunity to share it with others.
