My Story

Hello everyone,

As many of you know the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns wiped out a lot of our favorite activities such as watching movies, going to our favorite restaurants, and worst of all not seeing our friends. However, even though most of my typical daily activities were not safe I discovered scuba diving, my passion. Scuba diving might not be the easiest sport but it truly gave me experiences that changed my life. Since the first C OVID-19 lockdown I had the opportunity to dive at Angel Island, Monterey, Lake Tahoe, the Pier 39 tanks, and I even got to scuba dive right outside my beautiful house, with the ocean as my backyard. Scuba diving let me discover a whole new side of myself, and that felt good, discovering who you truly are is a very important part of your life.

However, scuba diving wasn't a fairy tale. I had to study. I read all of the scuba books I could get my hands on, and don't even get me started on all of the YOUTUBE videos. I had to learn many scuba skills, like how to assemble and disassemble my gear, how to properly use hand signals, and I learned most importantly how to be a safe and responsible scuba diver. My first dive was in Monterey.

I was shocked to see how much pollution was in the oceans. It startled me, it looked like an underwater dumpster. I found a wine bottle, rain boots, and even a flower pot! Sometimes trash ends up in the ocean but I want to change this, I want to save the ocean. Many animals have died from plastic injustion. It hurts my heart to see all of these inncocent animals suffer because of our polution. I am proud to say that I partner with Project Aware, Ocean Conservancy, and 4ocean. These organazations are taking a stand and are collecting doantions so we can start to remove trash from our oceans and start our long road to recovery.
