Why I want to change my life and become a PADI Instructor
The ‘cool’ factor.
Face it! How many people do we know who is a Scuba Instructor? Just for the cool factor, anyone with a great sense of adventure will jump at the opportunity, to live inBaliand learn to do the best thing you wanted in your life.
For me, scuba diving was something that started a bit late, I did not even know how to swim, I took up swimming to do diving, that’s how motivated I became in the start of 2010. Two months of swimming classes and then I was ready for my Open Water Certification.
That was followed by slow steps, to my ultimate career as a PADI MSDT. Apart from ‘looking cool’, there are a few more reasons why I want to change my life and become a PADI Instructor.
Education about the ocean world is of utmost importance, though most of us do not realize the enormity of our simple actions contributing to the climatic changes, it really does. By becoming a PADI Instructor, I hope to educate others on environmental preservation and also experience the joy at seeing people stepping out of their comfort zone, seeing fear changed to confidence.
To rediscover my inner self through never-before experiences.
Out in the vastness of the ocean, you suddenly feel the greatness of nature. While out in the real world, in the cities, we are so accustomed to being fascinated by man’s creations, or the best innovations. Out there in the oceans, you see the beautiful things created by nature, and unseen by so many, and it brings you a step closer to your inner self. Becoming an Instructor will go a long way in experiencing this more and at the same time help others to experience it too, by teaching diving.
A very large part of the oceans is still relatively unexplored. With diving being now being very common to many areas, diving vacations are very popular. As a PADI Dive Instructor the enormous opportunities of travelling to beautiful locations and exploring the unseen, underwater world is a motivation like no other.
To develop friendships without borders.
Every time you go on a dive trip, as with every group activity, you meet other like minded individuals, you bond with them and form strong friendships. Diving is a worldwide activity and you meet people from all over who travel to dive locations. In addition to the diving, the people and the cultures is the attraction.
Meet people. Go places. Do things.
For me, diving has helped to form lasting friendships that has extended into my professional career as well. Becoming a PADI Dive Instructor will give me the opportunity to grow and develop not only my relationships as dive buddies, but also extend into them into more areas of both my professional and personal life.
Thank you, Blue Season Bali for having this competition and giving me an opportunity to make my dream come true.
