Van Dyke in one sentence – Ria is the living proof that a beautiful young woman can be at the same time intelligent, humble, hard working, well educated, charming, mature and well-rounded individual with a big heart and a kind personality.
At the end of the day, it’s not only our education that matters, or the riches of our wealth or physical appearance, but whether we have uplifted those around us and shown love and kindness from one human being to another. My life is committed to this purpose.
There is so much pressure on young women in pageants to enhance their bodies in some way through plastic surgery… I believe that there are other, healthier and better options like eating healthy and practicing.
It is important that we all do our part to stand up against violence of all forms.
The best gift I’ve ever received is the gift of love from my family. They have supported me and encouraged me throughout my life.
