Pele Young was a dolphin trainer at the Oceanaria Colombia.

It’s on a tiny island off the Colombian coast of Cartagena. Tourists arrived a few times a day.

“That was a great time in my life,” she remembers. “I slept in a shack without running water. My entire wardrobe consisted of one long t-shirt and a bunch of bathing suits. I fell asleep to the sound of the dolphins playing in their enclosures. I loved every minute of it.” Pele didn’t want to leave.

But her father was getting worried.
