Many little girls dream of being a mermaid. Liu Yan is one of a few girls who have made the dream come true.
A mermaid dancer in an aquarium in Bejing, 36-year-old Liu is determined to continue her work as long as she can.
Liu developed a passion for the sea during a childhood visit in her to her aunt living in Dalian, a seaport in Northeast China's Liaoning Province. It was her first sight of the sea, and she was immediately absorbed by its vastness and beauty.
After growing up http://www.newyorkislandersteamstore.com/adidas-john-tavares-jersey , she gradually obtained certifications for swimming coach and lifeguard. She also earned CMAS 2 Star Diver, a certificate issued by the World Underwater Federation after testing skills in first aid, CPR and dealing with underwater issues that is recognized all over the world.
During the trainings, she began to learn mermaid dancing. "I was lucky to have close contact with gigantic whale shark and sand tiger shark, which was very impressive http://www.newyorkislandersteamstore.com/adidas-jason-chimera-jersey ," she recalled.
After studying foreign trade and English in college, she worked as an assistant and translator at a foreign-funded firm. Three years later, she quit. "The job was not bad but the amount of pressure was huge. I felt bored and stuck," she said.
In 2012, Liu became the first mermaid of Beijing Pacific Underwater World http://www.newyorkislandersteamstore.com/adidas-jaroslav-halak-jersey , a marine life exhibition hall in Haidian district. The dancing with sharks and mermaid show has become most popular among the various offerings the aquarium puts on.
Practicing to overcome oxygen shortage, water pressure and resistance was difficult in the beginning. Even with a slight deviation underwater, she could easily crash with artificial hills, or the glass wall. She had to practice for a month just how to greet the audience.
In her spare time, Liu does physical exercises and yoga to remain energetic and agile.
Her performance as a mermaid has gradually improved http://www.newyorkislandersteamstore.com/adidas-dennis-seidenberg-jersey , winning her constant applaud and appreciation from the audience.
So far, she has completed 108,000 minutes or 75 whole days of underwater performance.
"I want to be a mermaid for the whole life. I think I can't live without water or aquatic life," Liu noted.

Brazil's Dilma Rousseff was stripped of the country's presidency in an emotional impeachment vote and replaced by conservative rival Michel Temer, who promised to heal Latin America's biggest economy.
Temer http://www.newyorkislandersteamstore.com/adidas-denis-potvin-jersey , 75, was sworn in shortly after a majority of senators voted in a highly charged session to remove the leftist Rousseff, 68, on grounds that she illegally manipulated the state budget.
Rousseff's successor shrugged off her claims that he had led a "coup" to seize power from her Workers' Party government, which has ruled Brazil for 13 years.
Sworn in to serve out the remainder of Rousseff's four-year presidential term up to the end of 2018 http://www.newyorkislandersteamstore.com/adidas-clark-gillies-jersey , Temer vowed to create jobs in the recession-stricken country and guarantee "political stability" to lure investors.
"My only interest is in handing over to my successor a country that is reconciled, pacified and growing economically," he said in a pre-recorded television address, aired as he headed off to China for a G20 summit.
In a surprise twist, a separate vote to bar Rousseff from holding any public office for eight years failed to pass http://www.newyorkislandersteamstore.com/adidas-christopher-gibson-jersey , meaning she could in theory re-enter political life.
Rousseff told supporters at the Alvorada presidential palace on the outskirts of the capital Brasilia that she had committed no crime.
"They have convicted an innocent person and carried out a parliamentary coup," she said, defiantly vowing that she'd "be back."
- Cheers, cries, protests -
Rousseff was accused of taking illegal state loans to patch budget holes in 2014 http://www.newyorkislandersteamstore.com/adidas-casey-cizikas-jersey , masking the country's problems as it slid into today's economic disarray.
Pleading her innocence during a marathon 14-hour session on Monday, she said that abuse of the impeachment process put at risk Brazil's democracy, restored in 1985 after a two-decades-long military dictatorship.
She recalled how she was tortured and imprisoned in the 1970s for belonging to a leftist guerrilla group.
Cheers mixed with cries of disappointment erupted in the blue-carpeted Senate chamber Wednesday as the impeachment verdict flashed up on the electronic voting screen.
In the streets around the Congress a few dozen Rousseff supporters protested -- a fraction of the crowds her party once mobilized.
"We are protesting against the coup and fighting for democracy," said 61-year-old farmer Orlando Ribeiro.
In Sao Paulo, riot police fired tear gas to disperse crowds of protesters.
A few hundred protested peacefully in central Rio de Janeiro http://www.newyorkislandersteamstore.com/adidas-calvin-de-haan-jersey , waving flags and yelling "Temer out!"
- Decline of left -
Under Rousseff and her more popular predecessor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, 29 million Brazilians were lifted from poverty. But their Workers' Party became bogged down in corruption and a deep economic slump.
Huge anti-Rousseff street demonstrations over the past year reflected nationwide anger at Rousseff's management of a country suffering double-digit unemployment and inflation.
Temer had already begun drawing up market-friendly austerity reforms after taking took over in an interim role after Rousseff's initial suspension in May.
He is planning to pass a spending cap and a sensitive pensions reform.
- High emotion -
On the Senate floor emotions crackled in the run-up to the vote, then bo.
