I was on my way to the india china border. We were travelling in a civillian van through UP when a bunch of goons got into the bus to rob the Passengers. I stepped up to stop them but in the process they shot me in the neck. The bullet severd by spinal cord at the D3/D4 Vertebre leaving me paralysed below the chest. I now swim freestyle, backstroke and looking forward to SCUBA Diving as a sport.
I have always been attracted to the waters for as long as I can imagine. I was first introduced to the beautiful world beneath the waves in 2004 when I dived for the first time. Having dived from Maldives to Taiwan and from Egypt to Bali, I have always been fascinated by the uniqueness of each dive site. After becoming a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor and experiencing the world beneath the surface, I have now made it my aim to share my passion with everyone around!
Her first dive in 2006 got her hooked. Leaving marine research behind, in 2014 she decided to pursue her diving career full time and has been working as a dive master ever since. Working with kids and adults alike, she especially loves teaching them about the interesting and unusual aspects of the underwater world. Her passion for diving is infectious and rubs off on all around her. She has always wanted to explore more and her love for diving has taken her from the Cenotes to Cebu. She believes that every place is as fascinating as the next!
