1. When and Why Did You Decide to Pursue This Dive At This Level? What was your inspiration and motivation?

Sharing is caring!  All of us knew and usually hear it.  Unfortunately, I haven't expressed it yet in daily life and only focused on my own life due to my financial condition.  I used to think that I have to wait until I have become rich to donate the amount of money to a charity and still keep waiting for the right time to do as I haven’t been rich yet until now. 

Then I realized that donating is one of the selfless acts in life and it always feels good to be able to help needy people.  It doesn’t matter how much the amount of money to give as long as we are sincere and I can always start by giving a small amount that I afford.  Giving or participating in a charitable donation can make me feel happy and express gratitude in life by sharing with others. 

2. How Long Did It Take For You To Accomplish This Dive At This Level From The Day You Decided To Pursue It, And Why Did It Take That Long?

At the end of the Year 2022, I started my first step towards a charitable donation by giving a small amount of money to one of the local orphanages in my hometown through my friend's visit.  It took a month for me to find an opportunity to donate it. 

3. What Was The Hardest Part About Achieving This Particular Dive Level?

Picking the best charity to donate to was the hardest part as there are tons of non-profit organizations available.  There’s a lot of need out there, and how we give matters, not just whether we want to give or not. 

If I want to donate to an orphanage in my hometown, I used to ask my friend who will organize the donation so that I can join them by giving a small amount of money. But I will arrange the donation by myself and survey by visiting the place directly if have more budget to give. 

Some people take advantage of this to cheat our money as well, so we have to be careful and smart to choose where we want to donate.

4. What Was The Easiest Part About Achieving This Particular Dive Level?

It's very easy to donate or give to a charity in life as we can find so many online platforms or non-profit organizations every day.  There are so many orphanages in my hometown as well to donate. 

5. What Is Your Advice For Someone Who Is Pursuing This Dive And Level?

1. Determine what to donate and how much budget you have to give. 
2. Prepare the donations by searching the trustworthy organizations or places for charity.
3. If you give money directly to poor people in the local town, consider the impact as well, because we don't want to encourage people to be lazy and beggars.  We have to specify the goals and causes.

7. Tell Us A Story Of One Of Your Adventures While Pursuing This Dive (At This Level).

I donated a small amount to my friend who arranged the charity event by visiting an orphanage. 

I also bought a shirt from Uniqlo Peace For All in order to participate in its charity program as all the profit will be donated to those affected by poverty, violence, discrimination, etc. 

I felt good and motivated to practice an unselfish concern in life after donating to a charity.

8. What Evidence Did You Submit to Prove You Met the Requirements for This Dive and Level?

I submitted the evidence of the transfer slip to the Break Diving staff showing my donation of a small amount of money to a local charity.  I've also included here a photo of me wearing a Uniqlo Peace For All shirt.

9. Will You Be Pursuing The Next Level For This Dive? If Yes, Why? If Not, Why Not?

Yes, I will.  I wish to share love and kindness with the needy people in life by giving a donation.

10. What is the Break Diver's Creed?

No Rules.  No Excuses.  No Regrets.
