“My parents went on a work vacation, and when they came back, we were like, ‘We tried something called scuba diving.’ They thought it was pretty cool, and the next vacation we went on, we had the chance to go scuba diving. After that, my entire family wanted to be certified. So then we took a class, which was four hours in the classroom and three hours in the pool over two days. Basically, at the end of the training, we had to take a test, and if you pass, you get certified. I’ve been doing a lot of diving since then in the Grand Cayman, the Bahamas, St. Thomas, and the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific Ocean was probably one of the worst experiences because you couldn’t even see three feet in front of you. You’d look down and look up, and it looks like everyone’s gone. It’s fun to be underwater and see the different types of life compared to life on land. When I first tried scuba diving, I was scared to do it. But once I did it a few times, I really enjoyed it. It made me think that [you] should never doubt yourself if you want to try something new.”
