Growing up in the city, Delaynie always eagerly awaited summer so she could jump back into the pool or beach. From her earliest memories, swimming was a joy for her, however, it wasn't until her sophomore year at Lincoln High School in Yonkers that she enrolled herself in formal swimming lessons at the nearby YMCA. Encouraged by how quickly she picked up new skills and strokes, Delaynie became a certified Lifeguard at the Y, before training to teach swim lessons. She graduated with a National Honors Society of Social Studies, otherwise known as Rho Kappa and is now taking a short break from school as she continues to work with kids in the pool.
