Dives, surfs, sails, and lives by the sea. “The sea is not only a valuable resource, but also the most unifying and healing force – a resource that transcends all religious, political, and social divides. Throughout history, in every religion and culture, in every corner of the world, water is a purifying element that makes each of us understand that we have no control over superior forces. A person needs to find balance in unexpected situations where they have no control. It is a special privilege to continue to educate through the most precious resource that exists.
