I studied, came home and taught my grandmother. She said that if I really wanted to be free I had to study ”, she started news reporter of “É de Casa”.
To be able to enter college it was not easy and when he entered the educational institution he had to fight to pay the tuition. “I spent a lot of time unemployed, I accumulated a lot of debt. I was going to faculty with the money from the ticket my teachers gave me, I ate at the hostel for people on the street and I didn’t tell my grandmother because I made her believe that I was doing it ”, she said. Despite the difficulties, Valéria remained firm because, in addition to her grandmother, she had her aunt as an inspiration and great supporter. The problem is that in the last year of college she was asked to leave the institution. “I had a very large debt, it was six months before I graduated and I was expelled from college because of that debt. I left, worked, cleaned, paid my debt and went back to finish [o curso]”, Concluded the journalist.
