About Me

I am 29 years old and I have a degree in child and youth development as well as a degree in elementary education. The requirements for these degrees are deeper here where I live than other places in the world, so I have 7 years of university and a LOT of experience working with children and teens of all ages, backgrounds, needs, and abilities. I use my Raina persona to educate children about their environment, healthy development, and inspire.

In addition to being a mermaid, I also do professional photography and modelling, I am a musician who *has* worked professionally but enjoys it for fun now, Im very passionate about literacy and I love to read, and I’m also passionate about healthy life styles.

I have a few illnesses which I speak about from time to time, but I am currently happy and healthy for the most part. I have a wonderful partner of 7 years who’s very supportive of my mermaid dream.

As a mermaid I perform and speak at birthday parties, festivals, community events, camps, schools, universities, on TV, online, and take part in parades. I also am currently working at a daycare specifically with children who have special needs. I occasionally work at an art gallery and also hope to have my own elementary classroom in the future. I do a LOT of volunteering both in and out of my tail.

I’ve published two books, been in a few TV shows and Music Videos, been published in a lot of newspapers, news shows, and magazines, and I also founded and contributed to a mermaid magazine. I’ve had a few articles published about mermaids too.

Raina, you must have been told like a thousand times, but what you do is awesome. I have never heard of it before today, and I must say I would LOVE to meet you. I don't think I'm going to Canada anytime soon, but I'll be sure to check your events' list or something.
Do you know if things like that happen in France?
Anyway, I'm really impressed. I fell like a child right now :D

I just finished reading your second book, an entertaining read with the ups and downs, joys, and hard work that come with the territory. I guess being a mermaid is not all that different from being a pro athlete, musician, or actor. I even found a few parallels between your life experiences and my own.

In case you are wondering, I bought the book because curiosity got the best of me! :fish:
