When you were younger, you may have fantasized about one day being a mermaid – the beautiful, magical creatures who spend their days swimming under the sea and socializing with the cute creatures that roam the open water. Now, decades later, you can turn those childhood dreams into a reality – and not just with swirls of hair color and sparkly makeup palettes. Linden Wolbert has made a career performing as a mermaid.

Known as the “Mermaid to the Stars,” she teaches everything from swimming safety to ocean conservation. Learn more about a day in the life of Mermaid Linden in the video above.
