Quite by nature but never shy. Open-minded, friendly, humble and innately artistic are all attributes that describe Ryka, a petite EarthSista with an upbeat edge. Because she is coy and gracious, it can take a moment for her to share but its worth the wait. Self-driven and adventurous, Ryka’s love of writing and painting along with fashion design and photography are aspects that indicate that she marches to the beat of her own drum. Surrounded by a positive and loving family environment, she was nurtured to be an independent go-getter who is not afraid to be caring and loving. Ryka is also a nurturing mother raising a bright young son to be a wise king.
Coy, yet open; deep, yet straightforward; real, yet artistic. Always gracious and optimistic. Ryka is that bright, dimpled smile that makes you smile as well.
