Merpersons Really Do Exist? Mermaids and Mermen aka Merpersons are swimming in our Communities

Caitlin Nielsen, also known as Mermaid Cyanea, quit her job in 2015 to concentrate on being a full-time mermaid.

The biology graduate uses her fantasy identity to promote her passion for ocean conservation.

The 32-year-old, from Seattle, spends her days swimming in lakes and posting videos and photos to her army of followers.

She also has a workshop where she crafts handmade silicone mermaid tails, for other wannabe merpeople.

Caitlin said: “When I was in kindergarten and the teacher asked everyone to go around and say what they wanted to be when they grew up, I said ‘a mermaid.’

“Everyone laughed at me and now here I am – I’m a mermaid. I’m literally a real life mermaid.

“What inspired me to be a mermaid is hard to say. It’s actually the fact that I’ve always felt I was a mermaid.

“Ever since I saw Disney’s Little Mermaid when I was very young and I also watched the movie Splash with Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah.

“Both of my parents are marine biologists, so I grew up knowing a lot about the oceans, spending a lot of time at the sea shores and really feeling like I was meant to be in the ocean, so when I

saw mermaid movies it sort of resonated with me.”  Here is a video to explain how we are Merpeople.
