About Me

Please: Before rating a 3 or 1 message me on Swap Bot and I would be happy to make things right. Sometimes things get lost in the mail but I would be more than happy to resend or make it up to you as long as you communicate with me. I am proud of my 5 rating and do not want to lose it.

Aloha, my name is Katara Riana and I am a 24 year old college student. I was born and raised on Oahu, Hawaii but am currently living in Central Louisiana with my fiancée, Adrien. We will be getting married in November of 2019. I am a junior in college and am majoring in Hospitality Management at Northwestern State University.

I just (semi) recently moved to Central Louisiana from Anaheim, California where I was participating in the Spring 2017 Disney College Program.

My dream job after college is to work at the Walt Disney World Resort as a Guest Service Manager.

My hobbies include writing letters to my penpals, participating in swaps, traveling, going to the gym, petting strangers dogs and shopping for clothing & makeup. I love to watch makeup tutorials on YouTube and watch reviews on new products.

Looking for Pen Pals

I am always looking for penpals to exchange letters with. If you are interested please feel free to send me a message here on swap-bot or follow my penpal instagram @ yourpenpal_katara

Ideal penpals will:

Be able to read and write in English fluently.

Keep spelling and grammatical errors to a minimum.

Use stationary other than folder or plain white printer paper.

Hand write all letters.

Live in the United States. (Although I am open to other countries the US is preferred for shipping cost purposes)

Be similar in age.

Have somewhat similar hobbies and/or interests.

and last but not least be a consistent and courteous penpal

Likes and enjoys

Some things I would enjoy to receive in swaps include:

• Travel items; Touristy postcards (specifically ones that's say where they are from on the front i.e A postcard that says Welcome to Dallas or Greetings from the Hoover Dam) that showcase something special about your hometown or state or other places that you have visited on vacation. Please fill them out on the back by writing a little something about the location on the card (unless the swap specifies them to be blank) Other examples include maps, park or attraction admission tickets, buttons or pins.

• Stickers and Stamps; I enjoy and can use all kinds of stickers and stamps (rubber stamps) whether they be tiny or large, cheap or not, homemade or store bought. I enjoy kawaii or cute stickers the best. I love letter stickers and kiddie/reward stickers are A-okay with me too. Anything I can use to decorate envelopes with.

• Disney! Anything Disney especially Disney Theme Park exclusive merchandise or holiday/limited edition items. My favorite characters are Mickey, Donald, Daisy, Woody, and Baby Groot. I love Disney pins and the 3" small small plush (not the tiny plastic ones) tsum tsums

• Coloring books and color pencils/thin markers (that do not bleed): For coloring books I prefer interesting unique books with more complex themes, specifically for teens- adults.

• Stationary; My favorite color is baby pink or baby blue. I love pastels or floral prints. I enjoy kawaii or cutesy prints too. I enjoy when the stationary comes in a set with matching envelopes.

• Office supplies; Cute journals, stationary, interesting non standard paperclips, push pins, paper tape, post its, rubber bands anything I can use for penpaling or swapping.

• Washi tape; Please only send paper tape. I love floral/cactus theme, food themed, holiday themed or kawaii/cutesy theme. The more feminine or girly the better.

• Gift Cards: Target, Starbucks (I enjoy blank or empty Starbucks cards as well if they are state specific or interesting/rare) Michaels, Amazon

• Sanrio; Little Twin Stars, Rillakkuma, Jewel Pets, My Melody and Kerropi are my favorite Sanrio characters.

• Snacks & candies; I STRONGLY DISLIKE CHOCOLATES - they melt and are messy. Sour candy is my favorite.

• Teas; Packets not loose leaf. I enjoy flavored teas best. Lemony, fruity teas or honey flavored teas. Willing to try anything except mint.

• Starbucks Coffee, Starbucks Gift Cards (even if they are empty- since I collect them), YAH (You Are Here) mugs, Anything Starbucks (or Teavana)


• Anime or Mangas or anything related to them.

• Chocolate.

• House decor. I have our apartment set up for the most part and really have no use for salt and pepper shakers or hand towels.

• Religious things; (ie. The lord’s prayer, or crosses) Political things (i.e. campaign Buttons, or "I voted stickers") Also talking about politics, I'm not a Trump supporter and I don't really want to get into that.

• Used items; I don't want your unusable craft supplies. Or your magazine or news paper clippings. I especially don't want your coupons for food items. (Although I will gladly take coupons for Michaels, Target or Ulta/Sephora other Sale coupons (20% of entire purchase or BOGO -Clothing Makeup) Also Washi samples are good and I don't consider used items)

• Craft items; I do not knit/sew or decoupage. I'm not crafty in the slightest so please do not send crafting materials such as ribbon or yarn.

• Confetti, PLEASE I BEG YOU DONT DO IT. If it's a profile based swap I won't give you a heart. I HATE confetti all over the place

Comment: Received the first letter on time, but the USPS destroyed the envelope and only one page was included. Still waiting on the re-send for the remainder of the letter.
