How many times have we let our mind take over our actions and important decisions to make in life Every day isn t it From something very simple as thinking that we are not capable of going through a complicated situation to somethingcomplex as making a dream come true We know the power that our brain has over our lives but sometimes we don t stop to think about it and let its power govern our

day isn t it From something very simple as thinking that we are not capable of going through a complicated situation to somethingcomplex as making a dream come true We know the power that our brain has over our lives but sometimes we don t stop to think about it and let its power govern our activities.This story narrates what a nineteen year old swimmer and her family had to go through in order to win a long distance race from San Pedro to Santa Catalina Island in the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean Margarita, the swimmer, was always supported by her dad and coach, Eduardo Her brother, Simon and her mom and grandmother, Aida and Cecilia, make appearance in the story too In my opinion, the characters that have an important role are Margarita s dad and Margarita along with the press This is a very good story that makes us think about how sometimes we need to force our mind into positive thoughts to accomplish our goals Throughout the whole story Margarita s father was always trying to keep her focus to overcome the tiredness of her body for being swimming a long distance In contrast the other family members and the press were being negative and tried to put her down even before trying Aida, Simon and Cecilia were constantly asking Eduardo to stop Margarita and take her out of the race, but Eduardo never listened to them The press even said she was not going to make it and called her amateur To me this is the important role of the press, even though they only appear twice in the story, their comments gave courage to Margarita and made her stronger than she was before Towards the end of the story something happened that caught up my attention Margarita lost her concentration after listening to an argument between her family and apparently started to surrender Nobody knew what happened to her and they all lost their hopes, even Eduardo thought they wouldn t find her alive The story ends up leaving us a good taste and an important advice to never surrender and being focus to be able to govern our brain and accomplish our goals, just how Margarita did to win the race Right after reading The Cuban Swimmer I was filled with many emotions The
