The Best Dive Job In the World
My name is Adam Dovichak and I am a nineteen year old from Alberta, Canada. I have always been interested in exploring our world: particularly the world that exists underwater. Growing up in the landlocked prairie I haven’t had many opportunities to experience the vastness of our oceans firsthand. I did get a taste for what I had been missing when I got the opportunity to dive in Mexico. I felt such peace and freedom as I glided through the waters. It was an amazing experience. I knew instantly that this was something I had to do again.
In southern Alberta, however, it was not likely to happen anytime soon. The main industry in our province is oil and gas. I had always been expected to find a job with a successful oil company and earn a comfortable living. I tried working in the field for a while but it isn’t the career for me. There has to be more in this life than going to a job everyday just to make money. With this idea in my mind I have been struggling with life’s big questions recently; why am I here? What is my purpose? I can’t answer those questions for everyone but I do intend to figure them out for myself.
I think that this opportunity would be perfect for me. I know that every moment of life should be enjoyed and lived fully and this opportunity could allow me to grow and discover a lot of things about myself and about our planet. I long for a career that would allow me to explore the world we live in and diving is just the job that would allow that. I want more than anything to recreate those feelings that I experienced my first time diving. I can just imagine what it would be like to wake up every day knowing that I truly have the best job in the world.
