I came to Roatan, without the plan to start diving and I never dove before but I heard everyone raving about it, and I decided that I want to try it. I walked into Anthony’s Key Resort to ask for courses. I was sure that I would love to dive and one course wouldn't be enough for me so I asked how to become an instructor. I met with Tati and she explained me all the courses. A week later I started my Open Water Course and started helping out in the dive shop. There was an IDC starting in January 2017 and I accompanied the group during their course, I took pictures and videos of them and played the student for their presentations. After that I finished my Advance Open Water Course and helped out at the second IDC in February 2017, I did the photos and videos again. I started my Rescue Course after the IDC and finished it at the right time when we had three people starting their Dive Master Internship for 4 weeks, I went diving with them to take pictures and collect some dives so that I’ll be able to start my dive master soon. Learning diving, helping out with courses and taking pictures is so much fun, it doesn't feel like work, helps me so much with my behavior and presence under water, I feel very confident diving with and helping other divers and I can't wait to start my IDC to be able to teach. This week started a new IDC and I’m helping out with playing the student in the presentation and taking the photos. I always had a passion for photography and it's awesome to give the people who do their IDC a little memory of their time here.
