“Everyone I’ve talked to who’s done their IDC loved it, thought it was an amazing experience, thought they learned so much about scuba diving.  And they just really enjoyed themselves. I know it’s going to be fun and amazing, I also know it’s going to be a lot of hard work. But I’m ready for it.” – Nadia Aly
