Lester Yee-Heng Kuo

Pepperdine SCUBA Club President, Instructor


Born and raised in the beautiful island of Taiwan, Lester has always been fond of the ocean since he was a little kid. That is why he chose to pursue undergraduate degrees in Media Production and Advertising at Pepperdine University in Malibu. 

He started diving in the summer of 2012 in the warm waters of Taiwan, and ever since has been working his way towards a PADI pro. He is currently the president of the Pepperdine SCUBA Club, with the primary goal of spreading the amazing hobby of diving to Pepperdine students and faculty. He has completed his PADI Instructor, Divemaster & EFR Instructor training with Malibu Divers.

On land, Lester is also passionate about filming and editing videos, and playing the bass guitar.

He truly is living the Pepperdine motto in service to his fellow students and community, "freely ye received, freely give".  Thank you Lester!  "I Got 'Chu!"
