The beginning of a love affair
Sarah O'Gormans diving career
Sarah O’Gorman was a real water baby. From an early age she was introduced to diving by her dad, a Divemaster, who took her diving in the cold lakes in England, to Cyprus and also introduced her to the beauty of the Red Sea.
After his death she took a long break thinking she would never want to dive again without him. After graduating from the university with a degree in languages the pursued a career in the finance industry and soon realised that there should be more to life than sitting in an office and crunching numbers and around that time she took up her favourite hobby again: diving.
A dream comes true An article in a magazine brought her to Marsa Shagra, one of the Red Sea Diving Safari villages. Every year she used all her holidays to go diving, and even took 8 weeks off one year to do her Divemaster Course. When a job opportunity as an environmental manager opened up with Red Sea Diving Safari she grabbed the chance with both hands and moved out to the Egyptian desert in 2012. In 2014 she took on a new challenge as a marketing manager for the same company and has been in this position since than. Her love for the Red Sea startet early and developed in to a long lasting reaction ship, that last until today.
