Karissa Pierini Fryant was born and raised in Sacramento, California as a second generation Italian-American. Even though Italy has always been close to her heart, she has always had a deep connection with Latin America and its cultures, especially with Mexico. Karissa went to an orphanage in Tijuana at the age of eight years old, and this experience forever changed her life. Not only did she want to learn Spanish, but she also wanted to travel as much as possible in Latin America.
