YMCA Buffalo Niagara
June 2013 — Present
As a lifeguard at the Buffalo-Niagara YMCA, I was entrusted to not only protect and ensure the safety of lives in an aquatic environment, but to also teach them the joys that swimming can bring to one's life. While in such a position, I taught people of all ages and backgrounds. This job has not only allowed me to improve my own swimming technique, but I also gained a greater appreciation for my individual talents and abilities.
