Living the Music: Lissa Monet

Some people love music but Lissa Monet lives it.

It seems the Lissa has always been surrounded by music, even as a child. She recalls growing up with her parents from Trinidad & Tobago and Granada and there always being a huge Soca and Reggae presence in her home. Then, in elementary school her parents would set an alarm for her that turned on an 80’s radio station to wake her up. In high school she went to the Cardinal Academy for the Arts and studied Music. There she was introduced to classical and choral music as well as music theory and musical composition.

But now that you’ve sent an Intro, what do you do next? Well, with the contact information of your new acquaintance saved in the app, you’ll want to take some action to keep in touch, learn more about your new friend, and avoid suffering from “business card amnesia“. To see that information, just open the menu and choose the “My Shares” section. There you’ll see all the people to whom you’ve sent Intros, along with the dates you sent them and the city from where they were sent.
