I just wanted to show you a few pictures of me, and tell you a little bit more, about who I am, and why I think you should pick me for the Best Dive Job in the World. I am a happy person, and I like to have fun. I like to share my fun with other people too. All my life I have been surrounded by people, and I work with people every day. I would love to be a PADI instructor, because it would open op the door to a completely different life, than what I am living today. I am not unhappy with my life. I have many friends and a good family, and I have a decent job where I teach Danish to people from all around the world. But I want to see other places, especially where you have sandy beaches and sunny weather, and a high number of species, such as animals, plants, fish and natural phenomena. I absolutely adore nature, and I truly wish I could do something radical to make more people care about the world we live in. I also wish to explore some of those beautiful and breathtaking depths and places that I’ve never even seen on TV in Denmark. I feel a strong burning desire to live my life in a more adventurous way, and I believe that becoming a PADI instructor could fulfill a great part of that desire. I would be able to stay in places that I can normally only visit on a short vacation. And I would be able to work with something that I consider a pleasure, meeting a lot of new and interesting people, and showing them some of the numberless amazing and astonishing creatures living underneath the surface. I am not an experienced diver. I have gotten a taste of it in Egypt, my Open Water Course in British Virgin Islands, and that’s about it. I have bought a wetsuit and tried a little bit of freediving in Denmark, but it’s not the same, and it’s very cold. I have tried bathing in the sea once, when it was minus 15 degrees. I can’t stay out of the water, not even in Denmark, but I would definitely prefer some more tropical temperatures. From what I’ve heard, Bali would be perfect for me. I think you should choose me, because that choice will make everybody happy; you, me, the clients, tourists and local people in Bali – everybody except the other competitors. If you choose one of them instead, there is a much bigger chance of making more people uncomfortable. I am confident that I could complete the training and live up to the other requirements to your complete satisfaction. And I hope you have a job for me afterwards, or that you can help me find a job, so I can dive some more. I love it.
