Iâve known Rina for the last five years.Â Intelligent, sophisticated, kind and compassionate are all words I use to describe Rina Risper.Â She is always smiling and involved in a good cause. Â What I love about Rina is her dedication to others.Â Every time we meet she tells me about another charity she is helping. Â Â She is a mom, a business owner (President and Publisher of The New Citizens Press) and a humanitarian.Â Rina has an energy about her that shines.Â When ever we part ways Iâm smiling because Rinaâs positive energy is so contagious.Â If you get a chance to meet Rina, say hello.Â She is one of the friendliest people I know!
What or who inspires you?
People who are authentic and respect others inspire me. Â I love people who agree to disagree and still maintain a relationship. Â People who show compassion despite their lives are absolutely amazing to me. Â I love people who laugh heartily and cry deeply.
What is your Motto?
Live Simply. Take Chances. Love People.
Tell your story and don’t let other people define who you are. Â Live an amazing life and work towards fulfilling your dreams. Â If you put them on hold you may never get to them. Â If you behave authentically and live your life with integrity it is harder for “negative” people or circumstances to break you. Â I have been through so much in my life… domestic violence, homelessness and feelings of abandonment. Â Getting angry only empowers that which bothers you the most.
How do you handle Stress?
I handle stress by tackling what I can and being as complete as I can be. Â When I feel incomplete, I try to figure out where I can do a better job. Â I handle fear much better and don’t allow people to tell me what I am thinking or what I meant. Â It keeps confusion down to a minimum. Â People will have to at least respect you for your integrity.
