Not everyone loves to race but we are equally proud of this girl as of all our racing swimmers. Josephine has swam quietly for several years, working on her strokes, making her own goals and simply enjoying the love of swimming. On her holiday this week, she requested to swim the length of Buttermere. And than after lunch she decided to swim the width. She doesn’t like to race but she loves a personal challenge, she is self-motivated, self driven, she doesn’t follow the crowd she is herself and has grown into a very inspirational teenage we are incredibly proud of! 💙❤️🧡
