My name is Sariah Ardila and I am 13 years old, have been swimming professionally since the age of 8. I am from Costa Rica, one of the happiest countries in the world, located in Central America.
I love swimming ever since I tried the water, and thanks to my mom who saw my passion, got me into lessons since the age of 6 years old.
I am blessed to have the most supporting mother, who has given it all to me. I have seen her effort, working hard for me to travel, have the best swimming gears, get the best training in the country, she has done it all. But now we need help, and what a better way than this one!
Always follow your heart, like me, I follow my dream, which is swimming...are you following yours?
Here am I with my trainers Frank Rivas and Claudia Poll who got an Olímpico gold medal. We are in a meet in Floirda 2016. I was 10 years old I this picture.
Now at the age of 13 I have a new swimming coach who truly believes in me and walks with me towards my goals!
And here I am now, at 13 year years old, swimming for my goals to become number one in my country!
