Author. Business Owner. Survivor. Inspirational Speaker.
Clarisa Hyson is the mother of four and a successful business woman. As a business owner, she holds a vision that empowers women, educating and nurturing the whole female by creating a strong support system which consists of speaking engagements at seminars, local groups, soon to be released books, fitness instruction, and a podcast. She is the owner of Words Matter and founded Woman That Shall. Woman That Shall is a platform of support with a mission to equip women with the love, knowledge, and support to conquer every obstacle and situation that life presents with poise and grace. It stands on 6 pillars: faith, health and wellness, life balance and organization, motivational encouragement, self esteem and validation, domestic violence awareness and survivor support.
Behind her businesses lies a testimony of a woman who found her voice after feeling voiceless in several abusive relationships and a detrimental marriage. She discovered that she tended to attract abusers, and it seemed to have stemmed from childhood, in which she was told that she was a liar. From there it instilled a fear in her, in which she felt her voice did not matter. It was a struggle to speak up for herself. After being delivered from a detrimental marriage, she committed herself to making sure other women did not feel as invaluable as she did during the end of her first marriage, and that they become bold enough to use that key to free themselves. She does this through speaking engagements, in which she feels led to motivate and inspire. Though she considers her speaking engagements to be more inspirational than spiritual, she speaks on whatever topic she is asked and is led by heart to speak on what is needed at the time.
Currently, Hyson is abiding in Columbia, South Carolina. She will officially be a published author early 2020, featuring her book entitled, “Kiera’s New Shoes”, and she is a “soon to be” certified fitness instructor. She is also in the process of releasing her weekly podcast entitled, “Sunday’s With Risa” She’s also spoken at several seminars and women’s groups, carrying the message of “Be the Standard You Want in Life”.

Actors, Models, and Talent for Christ (AMTC) is a nonprofit ministry dedicated to making good bolder in film, fashion, music and theater. Through a unique faith-based educational program, AMTC teaches performers how to become positive role models in the entertainment industry, then introduces them to top media executives through its international talent convention. AMTC follows The Great Commission of Jesus Christ by preparing actors, models, singers, dancers and comedians to ‘go into the world’ of arts and entertainment with love and excellence—as reflections of Christ and His truth. AMTC’s vision is to see the Great Commission of Jesus Christ fulfilled in film, fashion, music and theater.
During the summer of 2011, I had the honor of performing in the AMTC Summer 2011 Convention in Orlando, FL, and I was indeed "spotted" by an agent. It was an amazing experience as I attended several seminars and workshops taught by top professionals of the industry and was a contestant in several showcases: cold read, on camera acting, commercial runway, dance, and voice in which I presented my talents in front of top agents of the industry. Leading up to the convention, I auditioned for AMTC in September of 2010 for hip hop dance and in order to be well-rounded in craft, I was encouraged to do other categories as well. I was given several classes and private lessons, along with online seminars and an online account loaded with information and tips about the industry and auditioning. I was also given several resources. Overall, I learned a lot about myself as an artist during this experience, and I discovered that there was more sides to myself than simply dance. I also confronted my fears, and grew as a person.
