Freediving Champion Hanli Prinsloo On The Value Of Picking Your Own Story

From dreaming of being a mermaid as a little girl to deep freediving and swimming with the sea’s magical creatures, Hanli Prinsloo is the definition of someone who is living her passion and protecting what she loves along the way. A writer, speaker and ocean conservationist, she’s also the founder I Am Water, an ocean conservation trust that’s committed to sustaining the world's oceans through human experiences.

“We have to be very careful with how seriously we take our own thoughts, and which stories we pick to believe as true. You have to pick your own story.”

Hanli’s connection to animals and nature is what drives her. She shares her journey with Caley Africa.
