Steven Perry – Best Dive Job in the World 2012

Well…. One year on and I’m entering best dive job once again.

Hi I’m Steven Perry and I am still watching paint dry for a living… unfortunately I’m still a 22 year old painter and decorator from Slough in sunny England.

What Have I been doing for this past year since the last competition?

Apart from following Kenzo’s progress I’ve been studying for my PADI Open Water certificate which I have in a couple months’ time. But to be honest I’d rather be doing it in the Glorious Bali rather than at Stoney Cove in Leicester Brrrrrrrr cold or what? I have also been learning Spanish, for some reason I felt it was a good idea to learn another language


I suppose now’s the hard part where I try to describe my self

I’m small,funny,exciting and always looking for a good time and adventure.

Now for the serious stuff! .I am very good with people and customers. You could say I have a boyish charm about me that helps me get on with about everyone on this earth and consider all friends that I make along the way family.

So why do I want to win The Best Dive Job competition?

Who wouldn’t want to win it? Apart from being the coolest person down the pub “Hey I’m a SCUBA Instructor, What do you do for a living?”. Being in Bali and doing the thing that my hearts been yearning to do for the past 2 years would mean the world to me. It would help me get out of this dead end job and out of this boring humdrum town. I want to explore this earth it so big and most of it is water which is a good thing for us divers and I think this could be the passport I need to see it.Being Surrounded by good people who are on my level and also have a passion for the things that I love would be insane, what’s better then learning and teaching the things you love with the people you love.

Even though I have no regret about my life so far I feel that I have missed out on a lot and still haven’t done enough to quench my thirst of adventure and ultimate serenity. I am still only 22 and got the rest of my life ahead of me and nothing is going to stop me from chasing my dreams. With the help of this competition it could help me with my dreams and also I could help others with there’s.

For me the glass is half empty and it need filling up!!

It’s not where you’ve been, it’s where you’re going and hopefully Bali is my next destination.

So why not Vote for me Scuba Steve for the Best Dive Job and help me fill my glass.

Kind Regards.

Imagine a life of watching paint dry day after day?…, well that’s exactly what I do for a living.

Hi my name is Steven Perry and I am a 21 year old painter & decorator from Slough in the UK and as soon as I saw this competition I thought this was by far the life for me.

• Short
• Funny
• Enthusiastic
• Big Headed
• A Bit Of A Legend

I’m stuck in a boring job searching for a better way of life and I think this is the kick up the back-side I need to really be the man I’ve always wanted to be,

After turning down the opportunity of travelling round Europe I find myself these days with a very short attention span and constantly looking for some excitement in my life and the pub and gym just isn’t doing it for me anymore.

I am a quiet person around people that I don’t know but once I get to know you I will probably be centre of attention, Small man….Big personality.

My love for the ocean started around a year ago when a friend of mine decided to set up a marine fish aquarium, and I’ve been addicted ever since.

Since then I’ve always wanted to have my own tank but could never afford it but now come to realise “Why own a tank when you can see the fish in their natural habitat in the world’s biggest aquarium…. The ocean”
I can honestly say I have never been scuba diving or even snorkelling but I have always wanted to and it’s something I think I will do in the future. So please don’t let that stop you from choosing me; I am young and eager to learn. I’m enthusiastic to better my life and start a new career before it’s too late for me.
Where do I want to be this time next year?

On a boat surrounded by friends and new people in paradise ready to embark on a trip of a life time,
For me this job is about the opportunity to see the thing I love in life which is sea life in their natural environment and not only do I want to change my life for the better but becoming a PADI instructor may also change the life of others and maybe encourage them to take up a life in the BEST JOB IN THE WORLD and that would give me enough satisfaction for a life time as I’m sure it does for you guys too.

Thank You for considering me for the chance to have best dive job in the world and becoming the real life “Scuba Steve”

Hope to hear from you soon
