My Why

Nearly drowning plays a big role in why I started Alma Ocean. I am now a very strong swimmer, and even saved two of my friends in the ocean. I want people to feel confident and safe near the water. I want Black women to know it’s OK to get your hair wet in order to know a life-saving skill. My own personal journey is now a reflection of what I want to instill in my community – in those who may doubt themselves when it comes to learning how to swim.
