Faysal‘s attachment and unity with the water accompanied him over the years. A problem no longer seems as big in
the water as it does on land. An oppressive emotion no longer seems too heavy. Overwhelming thoughts dissolve.
In 2020, despite disapproval, he decides to train to become a lifeguard. When Faysal was five years old, he had polio
and is subsequently experiencing some physical limitations that remain with him to this day. For Faysal, swimming
is his life. „I have such great friendship with the water“.
