“Life Is Too Short To Be Unhappy”: Dublin Student Beat Depression By Befriending Sharks, Stingrays And Pigs In The Bahamas

Awesome underwater pictures show the 23-year-old diver cosying up to a range of animals including turtles, stingray and sharks. The sunny selfies were taken in the Bahamas by Stuart’s Cove dive instructor and native of the island, Amelia Klonaris – who beat depression by embracing her incredible beach paradise lifestyle.

“I love capturing moments and being able to look back on them”, she said. “I love all types of photography, mostly underwater or anywhere on the water. Being underwater is like being in a whole different world. It’s very peaceful and you interact with some pretty cool animals”.

But all has not been plain sailing for beach babe Amelia. She revealed how she faced tough times while studying business in Trinity College, Dublin before learning to become a dive guide.

“When I was in high school I never was good in school but I went on to college”, said Amelia. “I had this idea in my head that I was supposed to go into business just like all my friends were doing. I became super depressed and went through a hard time. But then I moved back home and started all of my diving courses. I went on to becoming and instructor. I am finally doing what I love and I am the happiest I’ve ever been. My message for young people would be to find your niche and do what you love. Life is too short to be unhappy”.
