Sarah Richard, Scuba diver and founder of Girls that Scuba. 

"Before starting Girls That Scuba, I looked for a similar community I could join myself, but after many a Google search I didn’t find one, so decided to create one myself. That’s where Girls that Scuba was born."

"To be honest [the biggest challenge for me as a diver] was being accepted as a female dive-master while I was working on a liveaboard in Micronesia. I experienced a lot of sexism while working there, as Micronesia is predominately a male divers’ playground with the depths and the wrecks. But it was this experience that made me want to reach out to more female divers, and eventually lead me starting Girls That Scuba."

"As media outlets showcase the beautiful side to diving more and more, attitudes are shifting, and more women are giving it a try and getting addicted. I think we can definitely make a difference by encouraging, empowering and educating women about scuba diving!"
