Who is the true you?

My true self is the person that sits down to eat and the one I go to bed with. The human behind the complex character that is Valentina. The person I most value and take care of but I also allow to be ever changing.

What is your passion?

I am a very passionate person. I consider myself an artist and my passions include art, glamour, beauty, fashion, transformation, creation. Just to name a few because it would be hard to name them all. I try to live my life with lots of passion since I am Latina.

When do you feel the most authentic?

I feel so authentic right now. But I love feeling of fresh out the shower wet hair and looking in the mirror before a long day and loving what I see.

Why is it important for YOUR voice to be heard?

Being an artist is about giving people hope and having hope is so incredibly important in these difficult times on this planet. I’m learning and growing, my voice is something I’m learning to use more but Im also doing a lot of listening right now.
