My name is Raisa. :) It means "leader" in Arabic.
In case you've guessed: I am half Arabic/half Hispanic. I'm originally from Miami but I am a senior at UCF majoring in Psychology. Also pursuing several minors & a certificate in Leadership studies. I'm an aspiring Motivational Speaker & Life Coach.
However, I can't deny the fact that I love every aspect of art there is. In fact, I've always wanted to do act and model.
Like most artists, I find beauty in the oddest things. What the average eye would normally overlook fascinates me. I like to paint, dance, model and occasionally write. I have been interested in modeling since age 16. Hence the reason I am on this site! Time to take some initiative.
A couple of modeling agencies have told me that I have a very versatile, exotic look. I can pass for several nationalities. My goal here is to gain a portfolio while allowing photographers to develop and add to theirs as well. And create some beautiful art! My style is eclectic but most of my shoots have been outdoors so far.
I want to try something different soon, perhaps wild make-up or something more editorial. Or perhaps something with a retro theme, or dark and mysterious.
