A real life mermaid and an aspiring mermaid walk into a bar… okay maybe not a bar but an indoor rock climbing arena.

Being the first Black African Instructor in South Africa, the Black Mermaid is determined to share her passion for the ocean with the world and explore how our deepest beliefs about the deep ocean can coexist with Freediving and perhaps even bring us closer to the knowledge of self.

In this episode I spend a day with Zandi The Black Mermaid and take her out the water to show her around some make shift indoor rocks.
Watch this on the @artofsuperwoman website and see our adventure and rich conversation around her career pivot from a corporate girl to a full time free diving instructor.

Let’s explore where this yearning of the ocean began for Zandi as a young girl from Soweto.
