To celebrate World Water Day in March, McMaster Water Network Student Chapter launched the #HumansofWater campaign! They wanted to highlight the pivotal role water has in all of their lives, whether it’s for work, play, health, or something else.
What's your fondest memory of water?
"I grew up in Muskoka, where sometimes it seems like you can’t go more than a few metres without coming across a beautiful lake or scenic river. Naturally, I spent a lot of time in the water as a kid. One of my favourite memories of water is swimming at a cottage with a very tight-knit group of friends. We used to spend hours trying to do handstands and somersaults in the water, and using masks to search for clams and rocks on the sandy bottom. Even on days when it was too cold to go in the water, we would sit on the end of the dock and dangle our feet in the cool lake. Throughout nearly 10 years of friendship, water has provided some of our most special memories."
