At present I was just elected Vice President of the Centro Comunitario de Buceo Ambassadors of the Sea where four of my children and nephews – all young – have learned to dive with a purpose, discovering untold stories of sunken ships burried in the ocean waters. They are becoming underwater archeology advocates.
They are in the verge of proving the identity of two sunken Danish slave ships that landed by nautical mistake here in Costa Rica´s Caribbean. Upon their arrival some 650 African men, women and children were freed in the shores even though they were destined to be enslaved in St Thomas in the presente day USA Virgin Islands.
I am going to create a program where this youth that is making history, will develop their self while making the most out of new oportunities that are being opened to them in such groundbreaking work.
