Angelina: I got over a significant fear


"The first time I swam through the waves by myself was hilarious, because my friend Joe was there as well, and Joe and Andre were kind of talking, and I just realised that I’d swam through the waves and I was swimming, I was so excited that I’d done it. It was windy that day as well and it was overcast, and yet I did do it and suddenly I was out there and I wasn’t even scared!"

-​ Angelina Russo
