"I did my first dive when I was nine years old in France, in the Lac D'Annecy. I did a number of dives after that but then I actually got my PADI qualification when I was 12 or 13 in Turkey which was the youngest you could be to qualify. At that point, everyone in my family my two sisters and both my Mum and Dad, we all learn to dive in Turkey. My mom was 50 at the time and she dived for the next 20 years. For me it’s just because I was fascinated with sharks."
