I am 18 years old from Moss Lake, NC and I am applying to be a green deckhand/stewardess to kick off my career in the yachting industry in hopes of eventually becoming a captain. I grew up driving and docking our family boats as well as offshore fishing on my father's 25' Grady White, and these activities are where my love for the water began. My love for the water has only intensified since as we have been on numerous vacations centered around fishing, snorkeling, and learning about the ocean. My family and I have chartered power catamarans in the Bahamas twice, where my father serves as captain and the rest of us as the mates. Growing up, I was an elite gymnast and played multiple sports throughout middle and high school up until I began spring board and platform diving. Maintaining an active lifestyle is extremely important to me and I now regularly participate in CrossFit. By the summer prior to senior year I knew I wanted to join the yachting industry. So, I graduated high school a semester early in order to begin my certifications for STCW when I was 17. Then, I got my first job as a hostess at our local pizzeria and now serve as a barista at our local coffee shop. I am looking for a job on a charter yacht based in Fort Lauderdale serving as a green deck hand or stewardess and am extremely excited to begin this career. I am available immediately.
I am beyond excited to learn and excel in this unique industry. My goal is to become a very respected female yacht captain as soon as I can. I am starting this job at a very young age so that I have a lifetime of experience and information to share to future girls wanting to join this industry. I am ready to enroll in classes and get all the certifications I possibly can to climb up this ladder and earn my way to be a captain. While I know I have a very long road ahead, I cannot help but to imagine how powerful my voice will be once I obtain my captains license. Although I know it will be difficult to enter the industry with no yachting experience, this does not discourage me as I am confident in my abilities to learn quickly and grasp complex tasks. While I do not have any personal experience on larger yachts, my background of growing up on the water and maintaining our small family boats will undoubtedly benefit me as I enter the industry and learn the ropes. Getting my first job as either a deckhand or stew will be the absolute best day of my life, I cannot wait to dive in and begin to learn from all the experienced crew members. There is no better way to learn than from experience!
