THE National newspaper today she tells her story: she is the voice of the protagonist of the film Valentina, which won the Goya Award for best animated film.

I worked hard and studied very hard.” Because “sometimes it was difficult but I managed it.” Thanks also to his family, who “was always close to me, at the time when we were recording in Rome , it was nice to all be together. They give me so much strength and love every day.”

I would like to help those who don't feel capable of doing great things and I would like them to understand their own needs and qualities, we all have them.” As an adult, she says, she wishes “to be a photo model for luxury brands.
