Three months ago when I told my then-boss that I was going to resign, he asked me why, and I told him, “it’s time to chase my dreams“. To which he replied, “Okay, I’m not about to get in the way of chasing dreams, but give me a month.

First things first
I’m Rhiza Sanchez but you can call me Riz. I’m 26, I have two older brothers, a SuperMom, and a SuperDad who’s in a better place now.
