What is beauty for you?

For me, beauty is synonymous with authenticity. It is transparency, it is energy, it is charm, it is the charisma that a person gives off. The physique we notice it 0.3 seconds and then that's how you live in your person.

In everyday life, I think I bring my self-confidence by being simply myself, authentic to the person I am. A simple girl.

What was the turning point in your life to accept you?

I have parents who have always accepted me for the person I was, so I think it helps a lot. On the other hand, the moment when I made the decision to stop my studies and follow my passion was still a point when I decided to live my life for me and not necessarily of this that people expected from me.

I think when I sing, that's where I manage to accept myself best. When I was little, it gave me a lot of self -confidence because I had found something in which I was good naturally. This was not the case for many other things so I think that sometimes bet on your natural talents it can help you have self -confidence.

What's beautiful in audacity?

For me in life, daring is the best thing. It's fun, too, when everyone tells you not to do something ... For example, everyone told me not to make a double occupation, that I was going to plant myself etc. Finally, it is the most beautiful thing I have made of my life.

We think people are concerned about us more than it really concerns it. Everyone lives their life. Everyone doesn't care. I have the impression, in any case.

What thing would you give to someone who lacks self-confidence?

The quickest way to increase your self -confidence is to take care of yourself. Everything starts from that. When you do not compare yourself to others, when you put on your natural talents, when you give yourself the right to imperfection. You allow yourself to make mistakes and forgive yourself, because our whole life, we are going to make mistakes. It's normal, it's part of the human being.
