I was born on a nearby island just a short distance off of Port Barton in 1994. I have two sisters and one brother.  My family is the quintessential Filipino family, my father is a fisherman and my mom keeps the house. However, four years ago I was given an opportunity to experience SCUBA diving for the first time and oh my god…I was hooked immediately.   I could not believe my luck when the Aquaholics instructor ask me if I would like to consider a career in diving; they needed an additional Dive Master in the future.  So, I jumped at the opportunity! Now here I am– an SSI Dive instructor.  It has been a dream come true to have such an unconventional career and I love being able to do an activity I adore and what makes it even better, this activity supports my life in the quiet and famous island of Siquijor.
