**Salut! Hi there!** I'm Mermaid Unicorn (human name: Alanna Sterling) (they/them), but you can call me **Merms**. I'm born and raised in **Ottawa, Canada** **Je suis bilingue, mais le plupart de mon chat parle en anglais.** I've self-taught [40 musical instruments](https://docs.google.com/document/d/12L2OwniW8soW8mwKQpfDEFUs7lDaPpVfcaK54bUCcTo/edit?usp=sharing) but usually only stream with about 5 at a time. After a life-changing bicycle accident on April 17th, 2019, I had a huge metal rod and screws surgically implanted to stick the bones of my left arm back together. I finally got them removed January 2021, but still have chronic pain in my left arm. The accident lead me to give up my regular live shows and become a full time Twitch Streamer, as well as inspired me to write a handful of new songs! I also am a **visual artist** (even though I never went to art school). I've been dyeing my own hair since I was 12 and I don't think I'll ever stop. I have a **BSc in Biomedical Science/Neuroscience** (yes, I'm a nerd). I focused a lot on **mental illness** in my studies to try and understand my own diagnoses (depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, ED, dissociative disorder), and am extremely passionate about raising awareness and ending the stigma surrounding mental health. I want to create an open space for people to be able to share their feelings and stories. I'm openly trans-nonbinary, gender fluid and pansexual/bisexual. The Mermaid Brigade is proud to be a safe space for all people in the LGBTQIA+ community.
