Terrelle Haugabrook is the creator/owner of Jamillah The Neighborhood Mermaid. JTNM was inspired by Terrelle's 5 year old daughter who at that time was so in love with mermaids but wanted to see images of mermaids that look like her, her family and the people in her neighborhood. This inspired and motivated Terrelle to bring this beautiful gift to her daughter and other young girls wanting to see beauty in their image. JTNM goal is for girls to be able to identify and connect with a mermaid, who looks like her and her family.
All of the JTNM products are created, designed, packaged and distributed in the USA.
