Sævör Dagný Erlendsdóttir was born and raised in the small harbour town of Akureyri, in the north of Iceland. She grew up around the ocean and the nature and it has always played a big part in her life and has led her to her field of work and studies. When she was fourteen, she did her scuba diving licence in France, and when she was 16, she started working with her father during summers at his scuba diving centre in Iceland. In 2016, after she graduated from high school, she moved for the winter to the island Fuerteventura in the Canaries, where she did her PADI and SSI Scuba Instructor. Since then, she’s been working as an instructor in Iceland, Cambodia, and the Canaries.
In 2018 she started studying in the University of Akureyri, where she does Fishery Sciences along with Business Administration, currently participating in an exchange program in California State Monterey Bay University, where she wanted further to study Marine Sciences and discover the Pacific Ocean. For the next fall, she’ll head back to Iceland to finish her studies.
