What an incredible feeling it must be to swim in a swimsuit for the first time in your life. Especially when a person was not born in the body in which it is common to wear swimsuit or bikini when swimming. The journey is long and challenging, bumpy, and it’s always a question of when have I arrived, when am I myself?
Slowly trying it all, facing your own desires, daring, overcoming shyness, all this takes time.
The joy a person feels when they take that first step is like a rebirth, new, exciting, adventurous, and certainly there is something euphoric about enjoying the waves like this for the first time.
