Hi, I’m Helen, 19, from England, and this is why you should pick me for the Best Dive Job in the World!

When I was little, my teacher asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said a mermaid. She told me I couldn’t because it wasn’t a real job. Pah! This is partly why I want to win – to prove the silly cow wrong!

My absolute first passion in life is travelling. This year I set off exploring Australia, New Zealand and Borneo. I climbed mountains, jumped off waterfalls, out of a plane, white water rafted, black water rafted, trekked the jungle, slept under stars, swam with whale sharks, got the obligatory backpacker scooter burn on my leg, worked on a dolphin monitoring program, watched a hell of a lot of sunsets, survived a cyclone and a tsunami and – basically – had the most insanely amazing time of my life. But the best and most significant thing I did, was learn to dive!

I have completely and utterly fallen in love with diving. Everything from the physical sport aspect, to the marine life, to the whole lifestyle and atmosphere – it’s just downright perfect. I have a grand total of 7 dives under my weight belt, but this just means that everything I see and do is more often than not still a first and therefore sooooo effin’ cool!!! And if I’m completely honest, a little bit scary – but doesn’t that just add to the fun?

I’m just not the ‘office job’ type of person; “9-to-5” is something I hope NEVER enters my vocabulary (unless it is a super extended happy hour…). I am an eternal backpacker who will continue to travel for the rest of my life, and what possible better way is there to achieve this than to combine it with diving!

On my Open Water course, it turned out someone in the group couldn’t actually swim. Over the three days I witnessed him learn to swim, and subsequently learn to dive. The sense of achievement was great, and it was pretty cool to be part of such a special moment. That’s the type of feeling I imagine happening again and again as a PADI Instructor, and that’s why I would be honoured to win this.

In terms of social media, I’m just starting up a blog based on my travels, and I also use Facebook and Twitter regularly – so I am highly qualified to spread the word and let everyone know what an amazing time we’re having!

I am a confident, happy-go-lucky beach bum that loves meeting new people and experiencing new things. I work hard, party harder, and put my all into everything I do. I promise I will not let you down. For me, this wouldn’t just be a job; it’d be an absolute dream come true. (Wow, that was cheesy.)

So, pick me for the Best Dive Job in the World, and let the good times roll!
