You might have heard a few weeks ago, Laura recommended we all watch Nyad on Netflix. Nyad was nominated for an Oscar and the film told the story of Diana Nyad, who first attempted to swim over 100 miles, which is 170 km, from Cuba to Florida in her 20s.
One her first attempt, she was unsuccessful.
At the age of 60, she decided to complete the feat she wasn’t able to when she was 28. She decided to do it without a shark cage. She also had to navigate dangerous marine creatures like box jellyfish, which can transfer enough toxin to paralyse and kill you. 

On her 5th attempt, at the age of 64, Diana completed the 170km swim alongside her best friend and coach Bonnie. 

This is a story of resilience, defying society's limitations of age and one of female friendship!
Diana also shares why she spoke publicly about the s*xual assault that she experienced at the hands of her coach from age 14 in an effort to help other victims not live in shame and be able to find their voice too.
Diana has such an energetic and inspirational attitude to life!
