How did you start diving?
I was fortunate to grow up around diving because it is a huge part of the culture in Zanzibar, Tanzania. I was introduced to the breathtaking ocean environment as a child and started diving at the age of 8, joining a group of ardent divers.
Your intimate connection to the undersea environment and admiration for the ocean’s beauty were cultivated by this early exposure.
