Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” was launched the identical month I used to be born in San Diego, California, in October 1989.

It was in all probability the primary Disney film I watched, which can be why I’ve all the time believed that “life underneath the ocean is healthier.” For my entire life, I have been happiest by the water and was raised with a deep appreciation for the ocean throughout my early years in California and Uruguay. The primary time I ever snorkeled was after I was a pre-teen in Hawaii and I have been in love with the aquatic interest ever since. 

However seeing the world of sea life that exists deep underneath the water in “The Little Mermaid” all the time made me wish to go down additional than simply swimming on high of the waves.

In truth, the track’s lyrics —”proper right here on the ocean ground, such great issues encompass you” — all the time caught in my head. So after I visited Raja Ampat, Indonesia, I made a decision to search out the braveness to go scuba diving for the primary time, because it’s know to have probably the most various aquatic life on the earth.

The track got here to life as I dove down into the biodiverse area and noticed black-tipped sharks chasing sting rays, loads of octopus, cuddle fish camouflaging to match their environment, technicolored nudibranchs, and a tiny sea horse.

The film stays a favourite, as does this reminiscence instantly impressed by it.
