Excerpts from a conversation
Where do you get your flair for music from?
My flair for music seems to be more innate. No one in my family is a musician. I come from a family of entrepreneurs, but I believe that’s where my creativity stems from. Being around progressive thinkers and ambitious people who are striving to be their best selves pushes me to be my best self and focus on upward momentum.
What is the first thing you do every morning?
The first thing I do every morning is open my curtains and let the sunlight in. It’s the best way for me to wake up and start my day.
Your fitness routine?
My fitness routine includes a lot of HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts. I try to get my 10,000 steps a day and drink a gallon of water (this doesn’t happen everyday but it’s a process).
One thing about Raveena that no one knows…
Something that no one knows… I am a GIA certified diamond grader. In case you know anyone looking…
