I have been thinking about how to write this now for a while, what can I do or say to really make you think this is our guy! Well here is an attempt anyway! My name is Gareth, that’s a start, from the UK currently finishing a degree in archaeology. Studying archaeology you may instantly have all these stereotypical thoughts about who I am, that may be good or bad! Being at university I have met people from all over the world and have had the opportunity to work abroad. I spent 3 months in the Czech Republic which I can say is an amazing country with excellent beer (not relevant but I love talking about the place)! When I’m not studying I am going out with mates or most importantly diving (andy studying a bit. Currently a BSAC sports diver I have dived all over the UK from Scotland to the South coast, guess what, I LOVE IT!
So why me? Why do I want this opportunity of a lifetime? Why change my life? Hundreds of people are applying for this and to argue that my life is worth changing more than someone else is impossible all I can say is that I make mean cocktails and awsesome back rubs ;)! On a serious note though, after studying in the UK, diving in the UK and living in the UK I want to get out there and work outside of the UK. Currently studying archaeology I want to work and eventually further study maritime archaeology. Already having a passion for archaeology I want to further my diving experience and introduce and teach the amazing sport to others not just at a recreational level but a professional level.
Being a student and a diver lets just say I have a rather wet and outgoing sense of humour and quite often balls of steel, whether its losing a bet and jumping into the see but naked at 5 degrees (see below right) or trying to be professional when really being clueless (see below left). What I can bring to you guys and Bali? As I said, I love diving; being a near grad student I am hard working and ambitious! I’m easy going and always happy to learn and teach. I hope I can also bring some archaeological knowledge to others and share my passion for the discipline.
Hope you enjoyed the poorly written application! Thanks for reading I hope to hear from you guys!
