Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I’m Valeria but you can call me Val and I’m from Europe. I live in a very small village which has always made my life really complicated as everyone knows each other and the whole town finds out about everything you do really fast. It has also made it incredibly hard to make friends, considering we barely get new people to socialize with.
I love singing, although I’m not good at it and I’d say I’m quite creative: I’ve recently learnt how to knit and embroid and I’m starting to learn how to play the guitar!
What Inspires You Every day? : The person who inspires me the most is my mum because she’s a really strong person who’s been fighting her whole lfie to make mine and my siblings lives easier.
My comfort celibrities (louis tomlinson, harry styles, niall horan and taylor swift) also inspire me a lot because they started at the very bottom and built their way to where they are now and if they could, why couldn’t i?
What is some words of wisdom you live by?: One of the quotes i repeat to myself on a daily basis are “everything will end up happening”. I read them on a book a few years ago and i find them to be very soothing. I overthink a lot and spend hours wondering what the outcome to a situation will be, so thinking to myself that it will happen at some point makes me realize there’s no use in me thinking so much as i can’t control what’s going to happen.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : This is a really basic answer but it’s also the truth: my ultimate goal is to have a happy life. I don’t need to have lots of money or live in a mansion, but it would be nice to have enough to live comfortably, being able to go on family vacations and to travel the world.
I’d like to have a job i enjoy, but i know most people end up getting tired of their job after some time, even if they loved it in the beggining.
I’d also like to find someone who understands me and loves me for who i am and someone i can trust my whole life with.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : When the pandemic started, it didn’t bother me at all, on the contrary, i quite enjoyed being on lockdown and staying at home, getting more time to work on learning new things. I was watching my friends go crazy over not being able to go outside, but i couldn’t understand them.
As time went by, things changed. When summer ended I realized we would probably go into lockdown sometime again in winter and that made me really anxious.
I would be okay with being in lockdown if i lived by myself, but being trapped with my family, who can’t stop fighting one another, it’s been really hard for me this past few months.
Luckily tho, none of my loved ones have passed away due to this illness, so that’s a good thing about this whole mess.
What is a message you would like to give others? : I’d tell everyone to take risks and don’t be afraid of being yourself. This is a piece of advice i still have to apply to myself but i think it’s extremely important that people are brave enough to do what they like and tell others what they want.
What else would you like to tell others about you or your life?: My teenage years are almost coming to an end and I’ve realized now that I’ll never get that time back, which has made me really sad, so please everyone take advantage of your time when you still have it and be aware we don’t know if we’ll be here tomorrow.
