Water has no magical properties.
Drinking it is essential to survival and swimming in it is good for health and fitness.
What type of person uses a child to start this tired conversation again?
I think you are too young to be asking total strangers. Talk to your parents or your pastor face to face.
I don't think you're too young if you understand what it is you're doing. A lot of young people get baptized because, well, that's what people do when they're Christian, right? But any church worth being the salt (and most churches take this pretty seriously) have a class of some kind about what baptism is and what it represents. There's a reason why people in other countries sometimes get killed for being baptized. But if you've studied it and can comfortably give an answer about how you're being baptized into Jesus' death and what this means to you, then go for it.
However, this should only be part of the conversation. You should also talk to your parents and pastor, I fully agree.
