Originally from the southern part of the Philippines (Baroy, Lanao del Norte), Micmic’s love for the outdoors took root during his time in university. After discovering his passion to teach, Micmic became a Basic Mountaineering Course Instructor and at the same time fell deeper in love with his favorite water activity, SCUBA Diving. He went on to become a PADI Dive Master and a BSAC Open Water Instructor.
