Pros: Being allowed to use the neighborhood pool
Cons: Getting too hot in the sun
Being a lifeguard was what i wanted to do the age that i turned 16, so thats exactly what i did. The honor was given to me to work at a local pool that i actually grew up swimming at, it couldn't be turned down. I worked there for 2 summers and grew relationships with the families and children that went to this pool. The most exciting part of this job was watching over them and as they swim in my care i try my best to be fully aware and ready for anything!
