“For me, being charismatic means possessing a divine energy that propels me towards achieving my personal best in everything that I do. From my home life, to my businesses/ career, maintaining a healthy body and strong sense of personal style, seeking new adventures whenever possible and pursuing my passions! I am BLESSED to have you along this journey with me!” xo Riss
