Like many of you, we had a quick email interview with Emily:


What is the most amazing experience of your life?
Without a doubt going down in a cage to see the Great Whites in South Africa, due to my passion for sharks from about the age of 8. I finally got to see my hero of sharks up close and personal, August 2008 best time of my life.

If you are already a scuba diver, what is the best place you have ever dived, and why?
This is a hard one as i have been blessed with many great dives. In memory of a great friend Adrian Tiller, and my first cave dive, it would be ‘The Apartments’ off Manly Beach Australia in 2001.

If you were stuck on an island for the rest of your life but could take only three things with you, what would they be?Stone Flint (for practical reasons,) mask, fins, snorkle (counts as one) and Lord of the Rings (it took me 3 months to read in Oz)

What do you feel is the most pressing environmental issue threatening our oceans?
Shark Finning would be up there for me as i am a huge shark fan! I get so enraged by it. Of course there are plenty of issues which need to be addressed, too many to put into 50 words in fact.

What would you say is your most positive personal attribute?

If you could improve one thing about yourself, what would it be?
My career, become a Dive instructor………..no really, confidence would be the answer.

And finally, you get a chance to ask me a question so make it a good one! (and no, I can’t tell you quite yet if you will win!)
What are you waiting for?? (get me out there) ……..Just joking – What would you be doing if you were not in Bali in your current role?

I have never imagined not doing what I do…..I would just hope that it was not doing something away from the ocean.  Good question, it has made me think!

Ok, so that’s it for today. Tomorrow I will announce the next top ten finalist. Stay tuned!!!!
