    August Sea Hero!

    I couldn’t be more honored and humbled to share that I have been selected as Sea Hero for the month of August by Scuba Diving Magazine! It’s really only been made possible through my work with Diversity In Aquatics and all of our partners, as well as my work with military veteran organizations like FORCE BLUE and USX.

    Here’s some more context and a link to read the short interview on their website:

    ”Anesti Vega is on a mission to expand the accessibility of diving and ocean exploration. Experiencing neutral buoyancy for the first time was a turning point in the PTSD recovery of the veteran, who threw himself into helping others experience scuba’s healing power. As chair of the Scuba Council of the nonprofit Diversity in Aquatics, the Indigenous change-maker approaches swimming through the lenses of social justice and public health to empower communities underrepresented in aquatics with the skills necessary to be safe in and around water. For Vega’s dedication to meeting anyone wherever they are in their water journey, he is our August Sea Hero.”

    It’s especially special because the article, both print and digital, feature photography by my 12-year-old son, Geo, who recently got scuba certified himself!

    Much Respect,
    Anesti Vega
