OWLLE VIDEO “CREED”
“Washed ashore on the beaches of Malibu, CA was where my Persian family adopted me. My name is Permaid, also known as The Persian Mermaid. At times, I feel like a fish out of water. My days course through the ebb and flow of life’s struggles as well as its feats. As a child I was out casted, misunderstood, and ridiculed. As I grew into adulthood I learned to accept and take strength in my differences. I’ve embraced the light as well as the dark that embodies me. Some people say I’m sexy but this is not always my intent. More than anything, I yearn to smile back at your smiling face.” – Permaid
