My name is Bridgette, I have my BA degree in Anthropology/Archaeology and I have been a mermaid for 3+ years and counting. My love for mermaids started for me at a very young age when I first watched "Splash" and "The Little Mermaid" and it took off from there! During my college years, I discovered Mertailor tails and I dreamed of one day owning one. Once I graduated college I made a promise to myself I would buy myself a tail and live out my mermaid dreams. I never imagined buying my basic silicone tail from Eric would take me to where I am today. Since I have become a mermaid, I had the pleasure to film for a MTV Youtube series "owning it" and a episode of "Top Secret Swimming Holes" for the Travel Channel, then becoming an ambassador for Mertailor has been the highlight of my mermaid career. I have been able to live out of one of my other childhood dreams to work festivals as a mermaid. My friends and I will work 5-7 festivals a year just Florida alone! One of the best things of becoming a mermaid though to be honest, is when I met some of my best friends who also share the same passions for being a mermaid and their passions for ocean conservation. As a mermaid, I would like to help spread knowledge on how to reduce the use of plastic and how we can better the environment. I bought myself a reusable water jug and stainless steel straws/paper straws to use instead of water bottles and plastic straws in restaurants. As I continue my life as a mermaid, I would like to help inform new comer mermaids/mermen on mermaid safety and to help support one another in the community. We are all here for the same reason and we should all support one another in each others journey into becoming the mermaid/merman we all want to be.
