“It has been an absolutely amazing journey, and just because I’m not flying around the world diving here and there with TV crew following me, doesn’t mean I can’t have fun or be proud of myself. Diving is diving and I am proud of myself and happy just the way I am here in Egypt. I think other kids should always have the chance to try diving whether they live in the freezing UK or in sunny Egypt. I would like to use Harrison Giles-Mainprize as an example. He doesn’t fly around the World to dive, he just uses the water he can in the UK whether it be raining and cold or not. Thank you for the support, I couldn’t have made it without my amazing instructors, my dive club and of course you guys!”
