How To Stay Inspired Everyday With Valeria Buldini

Wellbeing EML Italy
Valeria Buldini represented Italy at the Elite Model Look World Final in 2017 when it took place in her home country, in Milan! She made the Top 15 and has since walked at fashion week for Prada and Valentino. She tells us what makes the light in her life shine - daily inspirations, favourite films and songs, and the person whose advice she treasures the most!

The best advice I ever received was… “be yourself”

Some people might take it for granted, but for me, it took me a long time to figure out that there is no better weapon than confidence. We must be proud of who we are, because we are each unique, and that has always encouraged me to aim to be the best version of myself!

My biggest inspiration is… my mom!

My mom supports me, she is always by my side, she encourages me to follow my dreams and stick to my goals. Her good morals inspire me, she taught me the value of  respect, justice, honesty and family. She always tells me not to give up and to walk tall in order to face my fear, never to turn my back on them.

The best vacation I’ve been on was… Russia

I’ve been so many times since I was little, and I never get tired of it. Last time I went was for my summer holidays in 2018, and the best part was seeing my Russian relatives again. I love everything about Russia, the people, the language and the culture.  The landscapes are absolutely breathtaking, the food is so tasty, in Moscow, even the metro stations are worth seeing! I adore Russian museums too, especially the Hermitage in St. Petersburg!

A film that changed my point of view on life is… tLike Stars on Earth

It’s an Indian drama film produced and directed by Aamir Khan. The film is very moving, as it deals with children with dyslexic issues because of which they are rejected by the society, and even by their own families.

The song that’s stuck in my head right now is… Grande Amore by Il Volo

Their voices are truly extraordinary. I find it wonderful, it conveys me strong emotions and I even get goosebumps listening to it!

My stress-buster is… running

It really has a positive influence on my body and my mental wellbeing! Having a massage or going to the spa is also something that I really like doing when I want to let tension go.

EML taught me… to open up

I’ve always been very shy but taking part in such a contest gave me the possibility to get to know many new people to share opinions with. I’ve also realized how our differences make us unique and, at the same time make us stand together towards the same purpose. I also learnt some words from languages all over the world!

My favourite way to relax is… anything except TV!

I love practicing sports, hanging out with my friends or spending time with my dogs. I am not someone who can sit at home and watch TV all day!

My favourite people to follow on Instagram are… Karlie Kloss and Elisabetta Franchi

Karlie Kloss inspires me because it’s really empowering the way she supports young girls, is a symbol for girl power and for being confident, powerful and determined. Elisabetta Franchi is a real legend, she is a ray of sunshine and, no matter what, she is able to convey positivity. She’s supports a project rescuing dogs who are living in bad conditions or about to be killed. This topic is very important to me, and I really admire her.

My secret to confidence is… stay positive and surround myself with people who genuinely care!

Of course, I also avoid comparing myself to others or giving up after making a mistake, because I know that I can learn from it and it will help me overcoming my limits!
