    Hi Michelle, I am a huge fan and I am going through a lot. I get so much hate and death wishes on social media and school. My parents have done the most they could do to help solve it but it just made it much worse for me. I am like so proud of what I do and I get hate for it. You and your videos are what help me keep pushing and making me smile everyday. You help me more than you know. I am very thankful for you and I am glad to have came over your channel two and a half years ago. I am a proud fan and subscriber. From your biggest fan, Aimee R. Age 12

    Me and my friend were at a beach once and we were chilling on the sandbar and we saw these two people who were screaming for help and turns out it was a mom and a little girl that had wandered off a sand bar. We went to go and help them and everything was fine but I can’t imagine how scary that would have been

  • creamcakee

    fun tip for swimming: swimmers who have meet someone to teach them to swim probably know this but when your swimming it is much better to kick with *straight* legs, it doesn’t sound right but it saves energy AND it may make you swim faster!! 💕 PLEASE DO PILOTING IF YOU HAVENT

    i have to say. im a lifeguard at my local pool and you will never be fully prepared for first aid situations. last year there was a guy who had a heart attack at my pool and you would never expect what its gonna be like in the real situation. its honestly horrifying and nothing will ever prepare you to see a died body on the floor.
