Diane Nyad is an extremely courageous person. She swam in the deep dark ocean with no light from Cuba to Florida! It took her about 57 hours to reach her destination and when she arrived in Florida it was truly an amazing feeling. I would never swim that far while the danger of sharks and jellyfish is lurking in the waters. Of course there was a boat behind her, but she couldn't even touch it. She is also very determined to reach her life long dream, which is being able to swim that far. Also, Diane has a lot of courage to she has tried to swim that far swim many times and she was very brave to keep on trying because if I were her I would just quit after my first try. Diane Nyad is a truly inspirational and courageous person and that's why she is such a good role model to me and many more people that want to be just as courageous as her. Go Diane!!!
