2022 Divemaster Internship End of Programme
A Final ‘End of Month’ Report from Dhona, AMD-B’s 2022 Zero-to-Hero PADI DM Intern:
“Officially on my last month as a Divemaster intern in AMD-B. The thing on my mind now is just to make sure I maximize every opportunity that I have. These 7 months are just amazing experience for me, like a dream come true. From my first breath underwater, I knew that I want to do scuba diving everyday. And it was not an impulsive decision for sure. I had fun. In this internship, I work everyday but I also have fun and learn a lot of things everyday. I met hundreds people, heard stories from them, shared a lot of things, did 200 dives, laughed everyday, and smiled to thousands people.
The title of this program is Divemaster internship, but I learn way more than being a Divemaster. I tried to be active and take care of other people, not only myself. I learn how to be a good dive guide, which means good for the guests and good for the environment. This internship opened my eyes that even I, just one person, can do so much for the environment by consistent little steps.
After this, I’m planning to take a few days break to explore Bali and then work as a dive guide in dive company around Bali, because I feel confident guiding a dive around Bali at the moment. But, I’m not closing any possibilities to be a dive guide outside Bali. My long term plan is just to be able to promote and raise awareness towards our environment especially the ocean, whatever the way is. I can be a dive guide that’s always reminding my guests to take part to protect the environment, or be an environmentalist, or make a research and open people’s eyes about the importance to protect the environment.”
