In June/July 2017 I will be attempting to cross one of the Oceans 7 Channel Crossings: Molokai to Oahu (26 miles or 40km). I will be the first woman from an African country to complete this swim. This is an extremely challenging swim of which i have often been warned is “not to be taken lightly”. The channel is known as The Valley of Bones because of its unforgiving conditions such as unpredictable wind, strong currents and big surf.   I have already started preparing with my amazing, carefully-selected team and all the swims I do this year are in preparation for this crossing. I plan to do the majority of this swim in the dark, starting at 10pm. So learning to swim in the dark is just one of many steps in preparation for this challenge.   The main objective of this swim and all my preparatory swims is to create awareness of the dire need for ocean conservation as well as to educate rural communities on the importance of conservation and development. I have partnered with ocean conservation trust 'I am Water' as well as a local organisation in Hawaii called 'Deep & Beyond.' Locally I plan to work with LIV Village (and like-minded villages)  and give educational talks or workshops to communities locally and internationally to try and make an impact on the youth and encourage them to make the necessary changes to protect our planet.   I trust this is just a stepping stone to a bigger picture as I strive to use my God-given talents for His glory and to make lasting change equipping, inspiring and educating communities so that we can make our planet a cleaner and safer place to live.   For more information on this crossing have a lookat the website here:
