Washington, July 11 : The thought of jumping in shark-infested waters may send chills down anybody's spine, but supermodel Heidi Klum didn't hesitate doing so because she wanted to make herself a stronger person.
While speaking to OK! magazine, the 35-year-old revealed that she participated in the brave challenge for a documentary for the Discovery Channel.
"I jumped into the water with 45 sharks without a cage in the Bahamas. That was a really good experience," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
"I'm not saying that everyone should swim with sharks, but sometimes you have to jump over your own shadow in order to learn something that you will never forget for the rest of your life.
"Then you know you can conquer your fears," she added.
