How to Become A: Recreation Worker


Watch Ramana Hannigan, Aquatics Director for the Northwest YMCA of Atlanta, share her excitement over creating and growing her swim team from scratch. Her love of the water also helped in her studies as a marine biology major. And getting certified in scuba diving was a great way to both further her education and have fun at the same time while examining underwater marine life –including seeing a black tipped reef shark from 10 feet away. Her advice to girls is to be yourself and discover what you are passionate about, because you can always put your passion into your job.
