This week I was lucky enough to do a lot of fun diving. I had the pleasure of diving with some amazing people, and had some really great dives. The biggest event at the dive shop this week was hosting the IE. There were 13 candidates from around the region attending the IE, including 4 from our shop. Having all of those nervous instructors to be around me, gave me a flashback to when I was doing mine. I was so nervous and sick, but I managed to pass with no problems. I’m still so thankful for Georgia and my fellow candidates for being such an amazing support team. I’m very proud of the 4 from our shop, especially my two fellow Canadians.
This week team Canada (Mel, Tyler and I) are doing our MSDT program. I was a little nervous getting back in the classroom but with support from Georgia, and the others, I’m right back into the swing of things. I’m also very fortunate to have mentors like Brad and JT to help guide me in the right direction for teaching.
I can’t stress enough how much the team here at Oceans Unlimited and Go Pro Costa Rica have helped me to grow into a better diver, and teacher. I am constantly learning from everyone here, and am so thankful to be here as part of the team.
