“Let me tell you what I want to be when I grow up.

First, I want to be an Olympic swimmer (because) it is the best swimmer of all. I will win a gold medal.

Next, I will be the youngest medalist in the breast stroke. I know this because I was born with a great frog leg kick.

Last, I love my amazing teacher Mrs. Robin. She teaches me to float on my back. She also rewards me with stars for the number of laps I swim. These are some of the reasons I’d like to become an Olympic swimmer.”
