Meet our Ambassadors

Meet Val...

I’m Valentina, but you can call me Val. I’m 14 and live in Melbourne, Australia.  I go by she/her pronouns. 

I am a plant lover and every cent I get, I spend on new plant babies! I have lately been getting into crystals, and I have an addiction to boba tea. 

I play tennis almost every day and it brings me so much joy. Finally, I love reading and writing, it’s an amazing way to fly to another world, just for a bit.

Before The Teen Villa, I did The Whole-Hearted Teen, a similar program led by Mariana. It benefited me so, so much, as 2020 was a pretty hard one, I’m sure that you will all agree. It was honestly so life changing for me, the strategies and coping mechanisms I learnt will stay with me forever. 

When I was asked to be an Ambassador for The Teen Villa, I didn’t hesitate in saying yes. I am a very approachable person and if I  can help impact one person, I will have done my job.

I’m so happy you’re here, and I can’t wait to get to know you.
