ANA JOHNSON

Ana Johnson is a 13-year-old swimmer who lives in Melbourne in Australia.  Her dream is to swim for Australia in the next Olympics.

She swims in both long and short races and she has already come first in many important competitions.

As well as spending many hours in the pool, Ana also makes time for studying and for friends.

"I have lots of friends who swim and we're very close. It's much easier to have friends who are swimmers because they also have to get up early to practice like me and they understand this kind of life. But I'm not so different from other people my age. In my free time, I also enjoy going to movies and parties. There are also some good things about swimming for a club. I travel a lot for competitions and I've made friends with swimmers from other Australian cities and from other parts of the world."

Ana is becoming well known in Australia and she believes it is important to get more young people interested in swimming. "I don't mind talking to journalists and having my photograph taken.  But last year I was on TV and that was much more fun."

Ana hopes she will become an Olympic swimmer.

Mark Hamilton: Fitness instructor on a cruise ship

I thought about working on a ship after I watched a TV documentary about life on a cruise ship. It seemed really exciting. At the time I was working at my local gym. I enjoyed the job, but I’d been there for a few years, I’d never lived in a different town and I’d never been abroad. I really liked the idea of traveling and seeing the world.

I looked on the Internet and found a website with hundreds of jobs on cruise ships. I applied for a few jobs but didn’t get any. I then decided to give up my job in the gym and go on a trip around Australia. I wanted to get some experience of traveling. My boss was great and said I could go back at any time, but luckily, when I returned from my trip, I got the next job I applied for. It was as a fitness instructor on a cruise ship going to the Caribbean.

Life on a cruise ship is busy, but that’s what makes it exciting. A typical cruise ship has hundreds of employees from sailors to waiters and hairdressers to tour guides. I love the variety of my work. I teach aerobics, yoga, and fitness and I’m also a personal trainer in the gym. I work twelve hours a day and have two days off per cruise for sightseeing, but that’s enough for me. It’s always great to come home because I miss my friends and family, but then I love leaving again too.
