Over the past three years I have been a Peace Corps Volunteer in Madagascar where I helped my community learn important agriculture techniques in order to increase overall food security. With the participation of my community I planted trees, raised chickens, created permagardens and all without electricity or running water. Since leaving Peace Corps I've decided to pursue my love of SCUBA diving and take the plunge, pun intended, into becoming a certified SCUBA instructor. Ever since first becoming certified the underwater world has had a serious hold on me. Passion for something can't be ignored and my passion is accurately describe in this quote by Jacques Yves Cousteau, "From birth man carries the weight of gravity on his, or hers!, shoulders. He/Her is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free". I've been diving in Florida, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives and my journey is now taking me to Thailand and I'm hoping you could help me.
