Mermaid Spotlight: Merliah Mermaid
Written By10 Dec 2017
How did you get your start?
So, I first started mermaid about 6/7 years ago, I was searching for mermaid images for inspiration for an artwork when I came across Mahina Mermaid’s website, which then led me to purchase the Mahina Merfins!
What did your first tail look like?
My first tail was basically a fabric tail, it was turquoise and I had the fabric sewn over the Mahina Merfin and attached with another piece of fabric for my legs, it looked pretty okay!
What's your favorite thing to do on land?
My favourite thing to do on land has to be dancing!
What is your favorite spot to dive and do your mermaid thing?
Salang Beach, Tioman Island, Malaysia. In the earlier parts of 2017 I visited the island almost eevery weekend!! Ive never been so inlove with a place!
What's your favorite underwater animal?
Manta Rays for sure!
What's your favorite thing about being a mermaid?
My favourite thing about being a mermaid has to be that I get to be in the ocean all the time!
Is conservation important to you?
Conservation is SO important to me, its one of the reasons why I wanted to pursue being a mermaid. i want to educate everyone about home important the ocean is to us and why we need to care for it.
How can we (your mermaid friends) help the ocean, our home?
Reduce single use plastic!!! Our oceans are getting filled with plastic and it is truly one of the top ways marine animals die!!! Stop using straws, get a re-usable bag instead of a plastic bag!
