Christopher Rodriguez joins us from the Dominican Republic and is currently attending John Jay College where he's majoring in Criminal Justice Management. One hot sunny day in the Dominican Republic, Christopher went for a swim and learned the hard way that he did not know how swim. Luckily his older brother was close by and able to rescue Christopher which sparked his desire to learn to swim.
In high school, Christopher was on the debate team and baseball team and he ultimately became a competitive swimmer before also becoming lifeguard certified. One of Christopher's biggest joys has been to share his love of the aquatic world and help make sure that children do not have the same scary experience he did on that life-changing day in the Dominican Republic.
