I grew up in a tiny coastal town called Gansbaai,South Africa. Skipping school and spending all the time that I can sneaking to work with my mom to either be in the water , on Shark diving boats with my uncles or on Whale watching boats with my gem of a Grandfather . I am extremely proud to say that I grew up in a family of Marine biologists , conservationists , divers and fishermen. Each and every single person in my family plays a vital role in the girl I got to grow into today.
Apart from salt water pumping trough my veins I am extremely passionate about Writing , Art , Culture , Travel and most of all, people! I love writing and being creative when I am not diving.
This is why I started this blog, a tribute to my Family and Friends back in South Africa who I love and miss dearly. On here you will get to read about the world through a South Africans eyes.
I hope that you enjoy your visit here and now you know who Mona is!
