- My Summary
I started diving when I was 12 years old in The Red Sea, off the coast of Dahab. 3 years later I was an advanced diver and very proud of it! At 17 I completed my Dry suit and Nitrox courses in the UK and then at 21 I managed to take the Underwater Naturalist and Underwater Photography courses in the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. Unfortunately due to lack of funds and work, I have not been able to dive as much as I would like.
Doing a few beach clean up events in Queensland, Australia was more than enough to show me the devastation that we as human beings cause. Over 800kgs in 4 hours with 60 people from one small island! We must all band together to help protect the lifeblood of our planet, our home.
