Missy Franklin; Someone to Look Up To

July 16, 2016

We strive to give not only the gift of a life skill through teaching swim lessons, but to also surround our schools with people who are dedicated to doing good and those who will be someone to look up to.

Making a difference in the lives of other people is my passion in life; the ultimate wellbeing of individuals. In pursuing that passion, I recently graduated from Wayne State University’s (WSU) Masters of Social Work (M.S.W.) program.  My ultimate career goal with my degree is to become a school social worker and work with children in a K-8 educational system.

Swimming is Where I De-Stressed When Life Got too Hard

May 06, 2016

By just looking at me, you would not be able to understand
how much I’ve gone through in a short period of time. The amount of stress, anxiety, and depression I have hidden deeply and secretly fell into.
