Lesson Plan: “Nyad: Triumph of the Human Spirit”

Nyad: The mantra is; find a way

The Netflix biopic Nyad tells the story of Diana Nyad, the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage. Nyad faced immense challenges, including strong currents, jellyfish stings, and the threat of sharks. But she never gave up on her dream, and she completed the swim at the age of 64 on her fifth attempt.

Nyad’s story is unique and incomparable. She is a one-of-a-kind individual who achieved something truly extraordinary. The film also features a truly inspiring performance by Jodie Foster as Nyad’s coach and partner.

Overall, Nyad is a well-made and inspiring film. It is a story about courage, determination, and the power of the human spirit. Source: The Guardian
