Do I see myself as a professional mermaid? Not really!

I love to see people happy and hope to be a part of the reason why!


My name is Lesley. 32 years young. Happily married. Working in facility services. Part-time Mermaid & Fulltime dreamer!

 

I've always been fascinated by mermaids and the overall fantasy world which (just like many others) really started after seeing Disney's The Little Mermaid at the age of 3 or 4. A very long story short: I finally started Mermaid Swimming in 2012, but didn't get my first tail until 2013. Mermaiding wasn't well known in the Netherlands when I started. Apart from (for me, at the time) distant locations, there were no mermaid schools and now it has became almost as normal as regular swimmingclasses! I think it is great to see how fast it all went and that I have been able to follow this progress! I am the proud owner of a mermaid tail that is almost indistinguishable from real life and I participated in various projects and events! (View the list here!) 

 

In addition to Mermaiding being a hobby, it has become a lifestyle in which we try to live as consciously as possible. This includes, among other things: Clean-up days on the beach, but also at our doorstep in our own street. We try to do our bit by recycling, reusing, reducing (plastic) waste and avoid single-use plastic as much as we can and more!

 

Do I see myself as a professional mermaid? No I don't think so... Not really!

I love to see people happy and hope to be a part of the reason why!
