Even though Su-Kyi has only attended the Bronze level for a couple of classes, we can already see the vast improvement in her strokes. She enjoys each and every class. She won the Rookie of the Year Award from the Westside Waves swim team and is very excited and even more motivated! I credit her hard work and Liquid Lifestyles for all that you do.
