When Sonja started swim lessons at St. Ann Center’s Aquatic Center, she was 5 years old and very afraid of the water. She would sit on the steps of the pool wearing a life jacket. Enrolling in private lessons helped her overcome her fear. Through many hours of expert training, a little girl who avoided the water discovered her extraordinary gift of swimming.”
