Bonjour everyone !
On a cold Canadian snowy evening, here I am, dreaming of my futur… Or actually, I should not say it this way, because one of my favorite line is “ don t dream your life, live your dreams. So lets do it !
My name is Marieve, i m a quebec born girl, presently a flight attendant for a major airline, for the past 7 years. I m an intense traveler, ( I mean on my time off ! ) . but I ve never been to Bali ! I actually just got back from south Africa ( diving with the great white was an unexpected surprise .. let me tell you ! ) . I did my Padi Open Water few years ago in the warm , clear and very colorful water of the south florida keys. Since then, I dove in Hawaii,Thailand, Bahamas,Miami… and many more to come ! unfortunetly, at the moment I don’t have money to go further with my diving courses, so i wish with all my heart, I really do, to have my chance of a lifetime, and, yes, a life changing opportunity and win this contest !!!
Back at school, I studied tourism and international business. So I always knew I was going to be a “ proud citizen a planet earth “. I started swimming I was almost still in my mom’s belly, and i ve been called “ la petite grenouille “ in English “little frog “ since then. I loooove meeting new people from all around the globe, I enjoy learning from others, and I d truly take joy, pride and fun teaching people what I m the most fascinated by : the ocean and how to explore it s many wonders. I did give a lot of myself before to help others ( volunteer at spca, dogs shelters, fostering animals in need, visiting lonely people and mostly keep my head up and keeping strong when my own family was in need and going thru difficulties.. ) .
Now, it s my time. There’s no word, text, letters or any video that could describe how deeply winning this contest would mean for me. The only way to describe it is the joy people will notice on my face every time I put on that BCD and jump with them in the water and share with them my passion of diving. I ll then remember that chilly evening sitting in front of a computer typing this text and then I ll smile and say “ hummm, that s the feeling I was trying to describe! Hopefully we ll meet soon in the warm Balinese waters…
