Ocean fascinates me with all that’s beneath it, with all the different kinds of interesting aquatic life. The first time I breathed underwater and freely enjoyed the weightlessness and floated through the amazing colorful mysteries world below, was 8 years ago. I knew that I will go back again and again and I did. I got my first scuba diving degree from PADI the Professional Association of Diving Instructors. Then I continued learning more and more about scuba diving and finally decided to go all the way and became a PADI instructor and started to teach as I was in collage. After two years I started my own scuba diving company and the first scuba diving school for women in Iran. From that experience I have gained business management skills, people relations and effective communication, Risk Management, calmness under pressure, and efficient decision making. One of the main abilities I have developed through this experience is to move on to solving the problem or rectifying the situation when things did not go according to plan instead of stressing out about the problem.
The most enjoyable part of my experience as a dive instructor was to help people who had difficulties due to fear or phobias from sharks or deep water, be able to scuba dive and in fact enjoy the experience. Back when I used to work for a resort my manager used to say that all my customers where happy after their experience. I also implemented a few marketing strategies that helped increased our customers and I came up with an idea for underwater photography service that made it very popular and increased the revenue of the company from underwater photo service with a noticeable amount. That in fact was one of the reasons I could build a reputation and finally started my own dive resort while maintaining a great relationship with my previous employer.
