Hello everybody!
My name is Elena and I’m from Lobnya - it's a small town in Moscow District in Russia. I’m a physics teacher and I also work as a junior researcher in Institute for Problems in Mechanics.
When I was a child I wanted to become an astronaut to explore faraway planets. Years had passed, but I didn’t give up my dream- I was engaged in skydiving and paragliding.
A year ago I made my first underwater breath. It was very unusual and amazing experience, I felt like I was on another planet, wearing not a space-suit, but diving equipment. I was very happy, because my cherished childhood dream had come true.
I want to become a PADI Professional diving instructor because it’s the only job in the world that embraces all my dreams and interests: I like teaching and working with students, I also like diving, swimming and meeting new people.
I think that my abundant teaching experience will help me to be a good diving instructor and I would be happy to give up all my current work for the sake of it.
Vote for me, and I will open to you the beauty of Underwater World ! ! !
