America’s Florida native, Emily Alexandra Guglielmo is an enigma by traditional model search standards, but that’s what makes her such an essential part of the evolution of the social movement.Born in Tampa and now based in Orlando, Florida, she continues to blur the lines between style, art and persona.
For Emily, personal style is based on true expression rather than a socially-mandated way of being.
Emily is used to drawing appreciative glances everywhere she goes, from her local health food store to her favorite raw bar. It’s something that she’s used to, considering her modeling shoots and adventures as a professional mermaid and swimsuit model.
That’s right, gents, meet the living, breathing mermaid of your waking dreams. Emily is known globally as, “The American Mermaid®.”
“Back in the day, my father had his video camera out all the time, capturing my childhood, so I naturally felt comfortable playing to the camera.” She recalls.
Though Emily admits she is late to the social media landscape, she’s proud of what she’s achieved and is excited to start showing more through social media. With over 100,000 followers, we’re impressed by her unique brand of hustle and ability to make up for lost time.
“I love interacting with my followers,”she muses playfully. Her involvement with Miss Jetset has inspired her to amplify her philanthropic message.
She reflects, “Being a philanthropist and founder of my own non-profit, I love when companies support organizations to better the world in moving forward.”
