Sophie’s First blog about the Andark Scholarship

I am excited to be doing the Andark Scholarship for PADI Divemaster this summer. I have just completed my PADI Advanced Open Water, Rescue Diver and Emergency First Response with Andark and can’t wait to begin the Divemaster. I’m looking forward to visiting the Suunto factory in the next few weeks to thank them for the sponsorship. I met Mike Rushworth from Reveal Coaching last week to plan out my goals for this summer.

I’ve completed my first year at the University of Southampton studying Marine Biology. I began diving this year through a university society and absolutely loved it and I hope to be able to use diving for research in my future career. I grew up in rural Gloucestershire (quite far from the sea!) and I am a Girlguiding Rainbow leader in my free time.
