Researching throughout my family ancestry, I can assume that from the time of my lineages towards the present time, there has been no indication of any swimming experience; I am currently the only adherent within my family that has willingly pursued swimming. Previously, I have challenged myself to learn how to swim by attending the local YMCA, and although I was self-taught, I haven’t been fully equipped with the fundamental dynamics on swimming in order to pursue a temporary career as a lifeguard.Failing from my previous attempts of applying for a lifeguard, I believe that this course could enable me to have the essential tactics I deed to become a lifeguard.
The benefits of swimming are numerous, significant, and undeniable. Swimming can be beneficial to people across a broad range of ages and abilities (especially in the African-American society): the very early to the very old, the very slow to the very fast, those with injuries or degenerative conditions, pregnant women, beginner to serious athletes, and fitness buffs.In “Turning Silent,” W. E.
B Dubos expresses great abhorrence over the new principles set at Fiske University by stating “… At Fiske university the temptation and the tendency is to cramp self- expression, reduce experimentation to the lowest terms and cast everything in an iron mould. ” (Page 68-69) He believed the university is not supposed to suppress the self-expression of a student but rather support it.In one of his three “necessities for the spiritual equipment of an Institution of learning” (Page 68) explained within his speech, included Self-Knowledge.
When an Institution strips the students from expressing themselves through their apparel, It sets a disadvantage towards them by not giving them the ability to understand who they are and build their characteristics.
