“After being trained as a Swimming Instructor in the UK, I realised how rewarding it is teaching children and adults a skill that can save their lives. I love spending our free time close to the ocean and my favourite activities are scuba diving and open water swimming with sea animals – I want others to be safe and be able to have their own fun in the water too!”
