Helene-Julie Zofia Paamand
My name is Helene-Julie Zofia Paamand. I call myself an underwaterambassador. My journey started 13 years back when diving came into my life. At that time, I was living in Egypt, then later Mexico and in the Philippines. Quite early in my diving career, I became a diving instructor.
After teaching diving full time for 3 years, the glory of life as a dive instructor started to fade, and I felt I needed to stop, while I was still passionate about the underwater World. I wanted to find a different way to bring this passion alive in others. And to be honest, I also needed time and dives for myself. I went back to Denmark, obtained a "normal" job and took my chances to travel and dive the World at every opportunity that presented itself. That has brought to more than 40 countries, but I also dive as much as possible here in Denmark.
I started underwater photography a while back and besides being active on Social Media, I have opened a webpage with a gallery, where you can support ocean awareness projects through purchases of my photos.
I aim to engage non-divers as well as divers towards a lifestyle, that will keep our ocean healthy – not only for us, but for all the animals, we share the Planet with. We have to protect what we are made of, where we come from and what we are 100% dependant on – THE OCEAN.
I still teach private courses as well and take courses myself to become a better and more aware diver. And all this is to widen the corps of underwaterambassadors.
