I am studying to become a Master Scuba Diver with a focus on the Eco-environment. I am proud of it because I am petrified of sharks. Yep. I admit it. Thank you JAWS for scaring the crap out of everyone!  Still. Even if just a Hollywood Film, sharks are big and have crazy ragged teeth. So why on earth would I decide to get into diving then you ask? Well, it's simple. I have always loved nature. From the forest animals to the ocean, to microscopic life. I have always enjoyed seeing the beauty of creation. I guess it's the...

What do you cherish and love? I can name about five things off the top of my head. My husband, my cats, the ocean, making natural products, and music. Not necessarily in that order.
