My name is Nicole Louise Bradon, I’m twenty one years old and I feel like every moment I spend in my home town is spent existing, rather than living. In the summer of 2010, I spent one month in Guidel, France where I fell in love once again with the beach there, watching the surfers and hoping to have a beach life as my “everyday life” eventually. After coming home for a month, I booked an interrail ticket, took off and backpacked around Europe for another month, travelling parts of Croatia, Italy, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, France and The Netherlands.
I love beautiful places that inspire me, challenge me and satisfy me. There is so much I want to see, Bali is top of my list and this opportunity would blow my mind. I’ve always wanted to learn to scuba dive and thought I would probably learn when I finally get to travel Australia. To learn and become an instructor in Bali is on another level! l’d love to learn to surf too!
I want to change my life because I am a waitress in Grays, Essex and it doesn’t inspire, challenge or satisfy me. Grays is exactly how it sounds, grey. Every day is mundane. As much as it will always be “home”, I don’t want to flitter my life away, wake up in years to come and feel like I didn’t atleast try out for every opportunity possible. I remember an assembly I once had in secondary school, it sounds a bit corny but I think I will remember what this teacher said for the rest of my life, he had a world map and told us “there is a huge world out there and don’t waste your life in just one corner of it”, I see people that are content to live their life in this one corner of it and that’s fine for them but it isn’t enough for me. Since finishing college three years ago, I haven’t been sure at any point of what career I want, or particularly need, all I have
known is that I want to travel, and settle somewhere beautiful and find the right job along the way. The chance to be a PADI Instructor in Bali is the ultimate for me, an amazing job in an amazing place.
About me? I’m a friendly person, a go-with-the-flow type, I laugh all the time, I’m quietly ambitious, I’m passionate and sometimes fiery, I love music and people, I love new experiences, new food, new cultures. Eggs make me sneeze. I love summer and the sun, the way it makes every one seem friendlier and the way every one looks better with a tan! I have a gap in my front teeth, which is supposed to be lucky… I’m still waiting to find out if that’s true. I don’t know if I am the most deserving person in the world for this opportunity, but I know every part of me wants this.
