Hello! My name is Lismar. I was born in Brandon, Florida. My heart not only belongs to Florida, but the other half is in Puerto Rico. I spent all my summers and Christmas vacations there with my family. I love to spend time with my family. The beach is my peaceful place and I am a huge fan of documentary-style true investigation shows! I am currently working on my Bachelor's degree in Human Services.
