Leilia has always loved to swim in cold water, and to write. As a child she filled notebooks with stories and was happiest on wild and windy beaches. She is bringing her two loves together on her Instagram account, @swimmingthroughtheseasons, where she is documenting a year of 52 wild swims. Leilia writes for a living as a risk communications and community engagement for public health consultant.
