This past weekend a woman named Diane Nyad did an astounding thing.
She became the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without any aid.
Oh, and she’s 64. And she’s tried this feat four times before. Now, on her fifth try, she achieved her goal.
Her accomplishment is beyond amazing — but so is her drive to reach her dream.
You can see her give a TED talk here called “Dare to Dream: Dare to Dream: Diana Nyad at TEDxBerlin
