This campaign was set to raise funding for Carlo's IDC. As most of you, his friends, know that he has always had his soul one with the ocean, and that it would be a dream turned into reality, if he could finish his Instructor Development Course. I have seen my Husband on his toes as he worked as a Dive Master, and my heart is filled with joy knowing that he's doing such a great job and on something that he is completely passionate about. I have heard great feedback from various guests, and I am for certain that he's going to be just as hard-working and loving of his work, once he is able to complete his Instructor course.
It's that "When you know, you know." moment, and I see it in his eyes everyday-- that commitment to putting up great work all the time. Thank you, for taking the time to visit this page and extending however much you can.
If you don't already know me, My name is Carlo Holganza. Previously working for Evolution Dive Resort in Malapascua, Cebu, I'm now based in Dauin, Negros Oriental, working as a Dive Master for Liquid Dive Resort and I am absolutely in-love with the Ocean. I love my job because I get to spend time with some of this worlds most fascinating creatures from Sharks, to Turtles, to Cephalopods, to different kinds of fish (FROGFISH ARE MY FAVORITE! :D). Not only that, I also get to share the amazing underwater world with guests! It fills my heart and feeds my soul coming up after a dive seeing smiles on my guests' faces. It's an amazing experience and a wonderful feeling sharing these moments with people from all walks of life. But more-so than this, I get to educate, I get to share information with guests, and in doing so, I get to talk about conservation, proper dive etiquette and proper respect for marine life. This, I believe, is my calling. This is my motivation in taking the Instructor Course.
Becoming a Scuba Diving Instructor is THE DREAM! Becoming one will allow me to share even more, to educate more adequately, and to instill in people the importance of safety, etiquette and respect for the ocean's creatures right at ground zero, during the beginning of their diving course. Again, this is my calling: To be an advocate of the ocean. TO SHARE MY PASSION for diving and the ocean to other people.
This is where I need your help. The quicker I become an Instructor, the earlier I can start in sharing my passion. The next instructor development course actually starts on my birthday, this Nov. 26th and will continue on till the 10th of Dec. And so it would make my birthday extra special if I get to join this next course. Your assistance will then count as both birthday gift and donation to this cause. I will be documenting my progress throughout the course and you will be able to track my progress through Facebook (Link below). Thank you so much for taking the time to visit the page and helping out. However much you can spare will go a long way and will be greatly appreciated.
P.S Please do not share this campaign publicly on Facebook. If you'd like to share it to other people, please send them the link privately through Facebook message or email. Thank you.
