Description: My most rewarding after school activity was teaching students how to swim (some fearing water due to a bad experience) and of course when five of the girls that I coached netball made it into the national netball squad. Now I am looking forward to another new journey and this one is to Vietnam where I believe that in my own special way, I can and I will make a difference.
