Ignite Sammie's Scuba Diving Career

Hello! My name is Samantha Waters I am and have been a Scuba Diving intern at Rich Coast Diving for over 3 years. I started scuba diving when I was 14 years old when my family and I moved to Costa Rica. I am currently a PADI Master Scuba Diver which is the highest rank I can achieve until I turn 18. Scuba diving is my passion I love the ocean, ocean conservation, and introducing people to this amazing underwater world. I wish to continue sharing my passion and the wonders that come with it by becoming a PADI Dive Master and then a PADI Scuba Diving Instructor.

I have been working very hard doing odd jobs, artwork, and designing online advertisements for different businesses, all whilst working at my dive shop, to advance in my dive career. I have achieved so much and learned so many things living and working here with the wonderful Instructors and Interns at Rich Coast. To become an Instructor when I am 18 would mean everything to me as diving is my life and the ocean is my home. To share this world with people, teach diving, and preserve the ocean, that is my ultimate goal.
Now I need help. To achieve this I need your support. To become a full fledged Scuba Diving Instructor I need $3,500 and to continue my diver training, certifications, and soon teaching I need my own diving equipment.
