The seed of an artistic career was planted when Valerie’s parents supported her enthusiasm for music. At 15, she joined a musical theatre school where she spent the most defining years of her youth. They opened the door to a world that brought a unique fulfillment. After moving to Hamburg and earning a bachelor’s degree in Media Acting in three years, she applied to The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City – another door, another continent, another step closer to finding herself as an artist. This notion became reality when she moved to New York to study at The Academy.
After three years of intense training and formative shows in New York, Valerie is now back in Hamburg.
