Here I am going to talk about swimming that I found difficult but after learning I felt like an achievement. Right from my childhood I had anxiety about water and my teachers, friends and parents insisted that I learn swimming. I tried in my childhood and I drowned so water became the biggest fear of my life.As time passed I saw my friends doing watersports and swimming so I got inspired with some motivation from friends and training from an expert coach. I started swimming daily in a sports center near my home. I never skipped a day and with regular practice I learned swimming and my fear totally vanished.

- How did you feel about it

I feel awesome after learning swimming as it is the best exercise for the whole body. After learning I went on a beach holiday and did swimming and surfing. I really felt the depth of water and waves while surfing. There was an adrenaline rush in my body. I was so confident about my swimming skills that I did not have a drop of fear in me.

- Why did that achievement make you proud?

It was difficult for me just because I had water phobia and with this condition to step inside water is so challenging.

With his help today I can not only swim but dive deep in water and do scuba diving.
