LRM: What do you do for fun?
Carissa: I love going to the studio and recording music. I love music; to me it's a true stress reliever... I also enjoy traveling, watching movies, going to the beach, shopping, and spending time with friends and family.
LRM: What are some of your goals?
Carissa: Creating my own skin care line, I have always been very passionate about skin care...I want to brand my name and become the face of this product both Nationally and Internationally.
LRM: If you were on a deserted island and you had to pick between having your best friend on the island or a sexy man, who would you pick and why?
Carissa: I would pick my best friend, because nothing is better than being stranded with the best company...its not where you are, its who you are with!
LRM: What do you look for in a man?
Carissa: I look for a man who is genuine, smart, honest, funny, and witty. I like a man who likes to have a good time. I love go-getters... a man who goes out and gets what he wants is definitely a turn on.
LRM: What else turns you on?
Carissa: A man who knows how to treat a woman.
LRM: What are three things you can't live without?
Carissa: My family, music, and food.
LRM: Describe yourself in three words?
Carissa: I am very ambitious, loyal, and charming.
LRM: If you could design your own Lowrider, what would you name it, and what would the color be? Why?
Carissa: My Lowrider would be bright yellow, and I would name it STARBURST... because yellow is such a bright, bold powerful color and STAR-BURST says it all.
LRM: What's your best asset?
Carissa: My smile
LRM: What makes you different than most models?
Carissa: I have been independent most of my life and through my journey it has taught me if you want anything in life you have to work for it. I am not only a model, but I also have two bachelor degrees, and I am in the process of starting my own business in skin care.
