Fitness model & Instagram Influencer With Over 4 Million Followers Shares Her Path To Social Media Success
Valeria spent her childhood in Miami, Florida, as her parents moved there when she was only two years old. There is not much known about her early life, except that she attended Keiser University for Occupational Therapy, after matriculating from High School – her modelling career began during her first year of studies, when she was discovered by a well-known photographer. At that time she was training to be a boxer, and also attended other types of fitness training while uploading workout videos on her website.
Soon after Valeria started uploading videos on her website, she was crowned as a fitness queen by her fans, as she helped them with their workouts and their diets as well. When she became famous, she started working as a model, while also keeping her job of a fitness trainer – she worked with numerous mega brands including Mercedes, and appeared on a couple of magazine front pages such as “Latin Mix Calendar” in 2010 and 2011, “Nine5Four Magazine” in June 2011 and “Mixed Magazine” in September the same year.
Some of her other achievements include appearing in a music video called “White Girl” sung by Trina, Flo Rida and Git Fresh, and her partnership with “Southdadetoyata”, after she brought a Highlander car and brought it home on 23 February 2018.
