    I mean basically..she can barely swim. Some of my family should've been lifeguards, all of them strong swimmers, and most competed in High School events when they were young. Just some people can swim, some can stay afloat. She's obvious.

    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
