Good Evening everyone, tonight I will share to you some of my high lights. First, May I introduce myself: My name is Winston Calangi, 28th years old, and my country of origin is Philippines. I’ve been here in the United States of America since I graduated from High School in Manila, Philippines. Ten years ago, both my parents decided to migrate here in the U.S. for my future and three other siblings. Now that you know my root reference, I will now begin sharing some of my personal experience.
Tonight, I will talk about three things in my life. First is “Scuba Diving Experience in Marianas Island” Second is “My first Car”, and lastly is my “My Goal”.

Scuba Diving

Swimming with the Fish.... Have you ever wondered what it would be like to swim with the fish and explore the underwater jungle that covers two-thirds of the earth's surface? I have always been interested in water activities; swimming, diving and skiing, and I felt that scuba was for me. My first dive took place while on my vacation in Fiji. I came across a dive shop offering introductory dives, which immediately caught my interest. After much convincing my parents, with my solemn assurance that I would be careful, I was allowed to participate in a dive. I was ready, or so I thought. The slim basics such as breathing were explained and I was literally tossed in. Sounds easy enough, right! Well, WRONG! From the moment I hit the water, my experience was much less than fun. I quickly sank to the bottom into a new world, with unfamiliar dangers. I really wasn't ready for this experience. I was disorientated, causing me to panic, which shortened the length of my dive, not to mention my air supply. Let's just say I would not do that again.
To start exploring the underwater world, one must first master a few skills. Certification is the first step of learning to dive. From qualified professionals one must learn how to use the equipment, safety precautions, and the best places to dive....
