  1. I remember in grade 7 i went to my local mall hoping to find a movie to watch. Instead i came across ‘Sharkwater’… I completely fell in love with Rob and his passion to save the sharks. 10 years later, I still watch his documentary and followed his work. Not going to lie, but I am ashamed at my self for not stepping out of my comfort zone earlier… I have always loved the ocean and i’m been swimming since i was a little kid… but i never took the time to actually go into the water and swim with the beautiful creatures that are vital to our existence.. This year, i am volunteering in Fiji and will be getting the opportunity to go scuba diving with the sea creatures and really experience what I have always wanted to experience… I had always wanted to become a Marine biologist but decided to go into law…But now after watching Sharkwater again and being able to do what i REALLY wanted to do as a kid, I am determined to do what Rob was fighting for. I want to give my part in the fight against shark finning. I was so moved by hearing the death of Rob but i know he died for what he loved and your story and legacy will live on! Thank you Rob and his team for all that you’ve done. I hope one day i can join your team and fight with you all.
