Hi, I'm Lorena Derežanin. I'm 27 and I live in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. I practice Muay Thai and I'm very keen on hiking, snowboarding and surfing. There are many more adventure sports I would like to try and stick all my friends in!

Two years ago, I went scuba diving for the first time and felt incredible. I would love to get a chance to teach people how to dive and pass my thrill on these future sea junkies!
I'm hoping to get my Advanced Diving License next month, planning to dive in the Red Sea in Egypt this winter and I'm super excited about it!

Currently I'm working as a biologist at the Institute for Research and Development of Sustainable Ecosystems. Mostly, I'm dealing with environmental impact assessments. But I want to do more! I know I can!

I've worked as a guide on kayaking and rafting tours on the river Zrmanja. During that period which I enjoyed so much, I also gained some valuable life skills. That is why I would love to get a chance to work in Blue Season Bali, use those skills, meet new people and enjoy the ocean with them!

Furthermore, I would also love to continue educating people about the importance of ecosystems, especially marine ones. The threat to coral reefs in Southeast Asia is particularly high so let’s do our best to keep those reefs in good shape, shall we?

Please, VOTE for me, SHARE my video and HELP me ACHIEVE my dream endeavor!

THANK YOU for your time! :D
