Judith de la Rosa, Submaldives partner, was born in Barcelona on May 9th 1971, daughter of a Catalan mother and Asturian father. She inherited from her father the passion for the ocean and for diving, an activity he practiced since the beginning of the 70s. 19 years ago she visited Maldives for the first time and she fell in love with the Indian Ocean and its peoples. She decided to start a new life and fulfill her passion, as she was convinced that transmitting her love and deep respect for the ocean would help her be happy. During the first year she worked for a German company and on the second year she started working for a Spanish one. During the 3 following years she spent 6 months working as an instructor in Maldives and 5 months in the Red Sea, both in Sharm and in Brothers. These years of hard work have rewarded her with a great acquired experience. Judith is, above all, in love with the ocean, and able to leave everything behind to transmit her passion to those who surround her. Look close and you will for sure see her cry tears of joy under the water.
