A little Mermaid reached out to us to share her love of the ocean and she sent us a series of photos that quite simply took our breaths away. We just had to know more. We reached out to this little Mermaid and her mom and her words have really inspired us to be sure we support the dreams of all Mermaids-In-Waiting. Her name is Mermaid Autumn and this is her story.
“Autumn is a 10 year old spontaneous, playful, lovable junior mermaid. She is a daughter to Christopher and Kara Trimmer and sister to Darius, Charles and Bradley. Autumn has been swimming since she was a baby and she started swimming as a mermaid in pools the summer of 2014. Autumn is a student at Kessler Elementary and loves the water, whether it’s oceans or pools. Autumn loves mermaids and all water life, but she is most drawn to the unknown in the deep blue. Autumn wants to help clean the ocean and its beaches and feels sad when she see human litter. She wants to help save the sea turtles and feels confident that the turtles will one day soon be taken off the endangered list. She currently is trying to start an Ocean Conservation Mermaid Group for juniors and is making orca loom bracelets for everyone that donates to her project/idea. She would love to see more kids join her mermaid pod to swim and to volunteer for ocean clean ups. One tail at a time, kids can save the ocean.”
We’re currently featuring one of Mermaid Autumn’s photos on our homepage and it definitely suits our theme. Let’s send positive Mermaid vibes to Mermaid Autumn to continue her quest for ocean conservation and we’re sure we’ll be hearing more from her in the future. In fact, we’re looking for just the right opportunity for Mermaid Autumn to come visit Tybee Island so she can continue her Mermaid training and inspire others.
We’re so happy to feature Mermaid Autumn as an authentic Mermaid Sighting and to feature her on our Mermaid Tales. Special thanks to MerMom Kara for these beautiful photos. Do you believe in the power of a young girl’s dream? We sure do!
