Darline was born in the Dominican Republic and came to the U.S. when she was just under a year old. When she was 11, she joined her first swim team at the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club in Harlem, where she swam competitively throughout her teenage years. Darline soon became a certified Lifeguard and began teaching lessons to all children of all ages - from infants to adolescents - and has worked in aquatics ever since! She graduated from Bronx Community College with an Associates in Criminal Justice and currently attends John Jay College, as she works to complete her bachelor's degree with a major in Criminal Justice and two minors in Police Studies and Corrections.
