Rissa Castro Founder of Lady Grit



Founder of Lady Grit

Rissa Castro is a native Californian, born and raised in the Bay Area. Since moving to LA, she has had the opportunity to meet some amazing people. One of which introduced her to an orphanage in Mexico, which would become an annual destination prepared with donations of food and clothing for the children. Her love for travel and desire to see the world, and continue to make an impact, would spark the development of “traveling with purpose”. She would make the first international trip with purpose to Siem Reap, Cambodia in early 2017. There she would work with a non-profit founded by a survivor of Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge with focus on bringing education and schools to underprivileged villages surrounding Siem Reap. The desire to continue to give back through education and additionally, empower young women, would lead her to start fundraising for a small organization in Peru that helps to provide young Peruvian girls with a college education. Rissa resides in Los Angeles and is currently prepping her next overseas adventure.
