Story I am 1 of 5 kids. It's a life of shared everything and no sacred space. I have found something that is all mine and I have my own space when out on the water. I used to show up and play whatever sport I was in and was never that great. Paddling was different. I was showing up because I was falling in love with something. You view it as almost like a relationship that you want to be there and put in the time for. Paddling has built my confidence and my strength. I am grateful I have found something I love.
