I am Jaime.
I am 13 years old and have an unshakeable love for both swimming and wildlife.
Being part of the UCT online high school has given me the freedom to pursue my swimming career even further and has allowed me to have the time to focus on my other passion, wildlife conservation, the black rhino in particular .
For me swimming is a real passion and despite only being 13, I have ranked 1st in 4 events in the SA Swimming Rankings which came out on the 20th June 2022.
Dreams can often be just that, a dream, however with the support of my family, coach and friends I am more determined than ever to make both my dreams become realities.
During the The Cape Coastal Grand Prix Swim Series ( which takes part in PE – 25-27 June, Knysna 29-30 June and CT 2-4 July) ,in partnership with the Black Rhino Range Expansion Project and Buffalo Kloof , I will not only be swimming for gold, but swimming for the conservation and community projects around the protection of the Black Rhino .
Community education and assistance is so important in the conservation of these beautiful animals, without the Rangers and APU we wouldn’t have enough man power to protect the animals and educate communities about the importance wildlife and wildlife tourism.
For this reason I want my Personal Best (PB’s) swimming times to matter for a greater purpose. For every second that I take off my swimming times (during the following swimming competitions ) will make a difference in the lives of those supporting and protecting our Rhino’s.
