The first time I have dived in 2004. The underwater world has fascinated me irrevocably. Then, I have gone to study diving and have received my first OWD certificate in June 2008. And in October, 2008 I have received certificate Rescue diver PADI. Diving has reversed me, my thoughts and my relation to life. As a result I have left the prestigious work, have refused all and changed all my life. In the spring of 2009 I have passed course Divemaster PADI and have left to work as a guide on a dive-safari on Red sea, Egypt. I have received invaluable experience of diving, have seen beauty of the underwater world, have got acquainted with set of people. However also I saw many problems. By the way - garbage in underwater, destruction of coral reefs, irresponsible behavior of divers.
Wishing to change it I became instructor PADI. I want to inform to the students and divers with which to me it is necessary to dive that each our small positive action as a result will bring the big success.
I hope for it. And I trust in it.

From 1 to 3 December in Moscow, an 1 international exhibition of "The Ocean-2011".
Taking our mobile wall we ran to tell more people about the need to help the Sharks. Thank you to our friends and indifferent to all the people who once again supported us and put their signatures on a petition to protect sharks and also made donations.
In one day, we collected an additional 16 signatures and $ 30 donation. This is of course a little, but it certainly will be very useful.
During the campaign "Big Shark Shout Out" I was faced with a misunderstanding of why people need to save sharks...
Many people have asked - why do we need to protect sharks in Russia, because they are not available here. Some people said that this is a useless act and can`t do anything, "shouting for sharks," it is useless and ridiculous. Others said that sharks are monsters and they kill many people... Imagine what а level of awareness have the average citizen, if my main opponents were divers?
The ocean is fighting for its life. You can be an ocean hero!
But it`s just as hard to be a hero...
So, the week Big Shark Shout Out has ended... We have tried to take feasible part and to tell to people about necessity to rescue sharks.
With our mobile wall we visited people and told about this action and asked them to sign petitions in protection of sharks and to make donations. In total we have collected and have listed today 60 € donation for shark protection.
