In every hat she wears, Ria seeks to make people feel seen and heard. Whether it's through her morning job as a radio DJ or through the content she produces online, Ria has found a her purpose in facilitating more meaningful connections through the platform that she has.
How old are you?
I’m 25 years old turning 26 this year.
What do you do for a living, and what are the things that make you feel more alive?
I’m a Marketing Associate by day, Radio DJ at Monster RX93.1 at night and Let’s Pretend It’s 2AM podcast host, events host, voiceover talent and content creator during the breaks.
Going on new adventures definitely make me feel alive, but when time and circumstance don’t allow for new adventures, I look forward to being with the people I love the most.
I am most known for:
I am most known for being Ria Ramz on radio and for my podcast. But to the people who are closest to me, I’d like to think I’m most known for my energy and my heart.
I am most proud of:
I am most proud of knowing I’ve somehow helped a number of people through my podcast; that I’ve made them feel heard; that I’ve inspired them.
What do you think is the biggest challenge, and the best thing, about being your age?
The biggest challenge is figuring out what the hell I was put in this world for and the best thing is that I’ve got all the time to explore and work towards finding that purpose.
How have you grown wiser in the past two years?
Half yes, half no 😅 I still tend to make the same stupid decisions from time to time, but I’ve learned to manage myself better through all those challenges.
What are the best pieces of life advice you have ever received?
- If you see something beautiful in someone, speak it.
- If you think you’ve loved enough, you’re wrong, love more. And if you think you’ve loved more, love still.
- “Maybe giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they will love you back. Don’t expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart; but if it doesn’t, be content that it grew in yours.”
Who are the women you look up to and how have they helped shape your life?
My mom, definitely. She has been through so much, and she has never faltered. She has been hurt so many times and she still loves so greatly. She’s raised me to be strong, but still soft for the world; to never hold back on love; to be who I’m meant to be and have that be enough.
She Talks Generations celebrates wisdom-sharing among women; and highlights the different perspectives and unique strengths that we bring to the table at every life stage.
