1. When and Why Did You Decide to Pursue This Dive At This Level? What was your inspiration and motivation?
Working with young children taught me a lot. They are always so happy and energetic. Some are shy. Some are super outgoing. Some love to break the rules — but no matter what, they are kids who treat you with kindness. Seeing them walk into the camp, kiss their parents, and say goodbye was so sweet. They would tell me about their day, laugh about it, or complain about it. Their smiles while playing just made me so happy and truly lit up my day!
