A Real Story of a Boy that had a Dive Career Dream. A story of a dream that started 9 years ago! June 2009, his father Mr. Bartolo Soares told me his little boy was really passionated by the ocean and used to love to free-dive, snorkeling , fishing , etc.. we had scheduled a DISCOVER SCUBA DIVING and i had the pleasure of taking him to the open water portion. We went to "Champiñon" Reef, a shallow a close reef and on the very first moments i could see his natural "god gift" talent underwater! He loved that experience and "promised" me that would be his future profession after he finished the high-school (12o ano) !!! It's sounds "seamless" when you hear that from a 12 year old boy! The years past and that boy whenever had a time off from school, he was "around" on the beach of the divecenter i used to manage in front of one famous resort chain on the island. Years past, i ve moved to @caboverdediving on May 2012 and i rarely used to meet him around, but many times i used to meet his father around Santa Maria or Espargos. JUNE 2016, i ve met that 19 years old NO LONGER "little boy" and he "reminded me" that he was about to finish his high school and he would like to start his dive career. I ve got really "jaw dropped" and remembered all moments of the past. In order to make sure i ve asked him: Are you sure? Working as a Professional diver is totally different than "Diving for fun" !! What about your Language skills? He told me immediately he was sure, that was his dream, but nearly ZERO English or whatsoever .... huummmm... 🤔. I told him that to work in the Diving Industry he must speak at least a good English level. He told me quick he would pledge to achieve his dream. After a meeting with @caboverdediving owners, we decided to accept him on our "Divemaster Internship" coming from ZERO. August 2016 he started .... wowwww, so many improvement and achievements : - Studied and improved (and he is still improving) his English / Spanish skills and in less than 6 month his was already doing his briefings in English / 2- Ran all the way from OWD to Divemaster / DSD Leader in 7 months with great performance
