As far as I can remember I have always enjoyed being in the pool or sea. I am born and raised in Tehran,Iran. I gained my life guard diploma when I was 19 years old and during my university studies in Iran I also worked as a pool life guard. At the age 22 I received my coaching licence. I moved to Holland to continue my studies at TU Delft university and joined the swimming team (DSZ Wave). During my time as a student l participated in swimming competition, which I continue to do so today."
I am passionate about helping other swimmers better themselves. for instance when I am at the pool swimming I don’t hesitate to offer up my knowledge to a swimmer who struggles with some techniques. After all these years of experiences I can help adults overcome the fear.
"By dividing the complex swimming stroke into smaller steps, I help my students with accomplishing their swimming goals.""
At an early childhood, swimming was a big part of my life. Mainly, because I live near the sea so it was a must-have to learn how to swim at a young age. After I got my swimming certificates, I joined the rescue-squad in Katwijk. Joining the rescue-squad was a great way to combine my favorite hobby: swimming and to be able to rescue people who are drowning. After five years I quitted the rescue-squad with a big knowledge about swimming techniques. Currently, I am a chemistry student in Leiden."
"Oxygen is overrated anyway ;)""
I’ve been swimming for as long as I can remember, so when I got the chance to swim competitively in Qatar on the team, it was a massive opportunity I could never deny. Afterwards, towards the end of high school I got the opportunity to be a swim instructor for a couple of years. Those experiences allowed me to appreciate the importance of swimming be it for health, exercise, or just pure enjoyment. Currently I’m also doing my bachelor’s in psychology. I make sure to plan my lessons beforehand and to give it my best energy and my full commitment to the students taking the time to come to lessons."
"If you're coming to class, know that I'm here giving it my best and if you're here to learn and improve as much as you can, and have a good time, then know that's what you're going to get.""
From the moment I started swimming, I had loved it. Mainly because it is like you are somewhere else. I appear to have talent for it too, so I joined some competitive swimming teams for a while. I think it is safe to say that swimming is my nature."
I lived in Nigeria for some years, that is where my mom (also a teacher) helped out many locals who did not know how to float nor swim. Now I am working with scared adults myself. I put them at ease by telling them how I feel in the water. By giving them a different view, they get their minds off their fear.
"Water puts me at ease because when I swim or go under water, all the noise around me fades away. I love to share this with my students.""
