Risa grew up on the island of Guam so her love for the ocean goes beyond measures. She spends most of her time in and around the ocean. She first joined Surfrider by donating, attending beach cleanups, meetings and other Surfrider events. When she isn’t adventuring around the world, she uses a lot of her spare time doing beach cleanups and advocating for the environment and her community. Risa is a rebel with a cause hoping to make the world a better place.
