Again, I was very very shy. I remember I saw the most senior dancers, they were just so beautiful! And I thought: "You know what? I want to become like them! I'd better study more and more.". And, at the dance class, I was practicing more and more, until the point when, in 1996, I won a dance competition", Valeria started her story.
Also, she talked to the students about the importance of being confident: "I also studied, I graduated Psychology.
