For most people, the Pandemic was a hit that stopped them from chasing their dreams and brought them face to face with the harsh reality of work and financial instability. Much like many people during that time, Valentina Victoria was laid off from her place of employment in March of 2020 due to the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. At the time the future felt unclear and there were many elements of her life that were left up in the air.
While the pandemic was a challenge for Valentina, this was not the first time that she had been called to adapt and change her life completely. As a child, she had been raised in Russia and only migrated to the USA with her parents in her teenage years. The challenge of being in an entirely unfamiliar place where she did not speak the language meant that for a year she was forced to live at home, without even being able to enroll in the local school. This period of solitude allowed her to spend a year studying, reading, and watching TV until she finally managed to learn the English language. This challenge taught her the value of hard work and determination and that it was always within her power to make the best of her time.
With the loss of her job and the start of lockdown shortly after she was left in a similar position as before. Once again, she found herself in solitude, with ample time and nothing to do. In the past, it was through productivity that she had overcome the challenges in her life, and now it was with that same determination to be productive that she would face the lockdown and the pandemic. In an attempt to take her mind off of things she turned on the camera and started her YouTube channel where she modeled bikinis, lingerie, and dresses. This new creative outlet allowed her to express herself and to experiment with new types of modeling poses for her try-on hauls. In an inspired moment, Valentina Victoria decided to make a video modeling her favorite dresses while seated on the floor. This was an innovation as she had never seen anyone on the platform model in that way before.
The video was a hit, Valentina Victoria’s channel blew up, gaining over 50K subscribers overnight. The video was so successful that it did not just catapult her into the world of social media stardom, but it also helped begin a trend. Soon other fashion channels began uploading videos copying her style of posing. This was the start of what would become an extremely successful career. A career that she could have never expected when she was first starting out.
Within a year and a half of being on YouTube, she managed to amass over 600K subscribers. This exponential growth that continues to this day can be attributed to her hard work, consistency, and to her originality which can be seen throughout her content.
YouTube is not the only platform where she garnered a huge following on. In January of 2021, she joined TikTok and found great success gaining over 750k followers within the first few months. While her journey might make her seem like an overnight success, she was much more than that. She was one of the rare few individuals who after being pushed to their limits by the pandemic and worked hard and came out successful.
With her social media career on the rise, it only seems natural that Valentina Victoria is now hoping that she will soon be able to fulfill her lifelong dream of starting an animal charity. That dream may seem far away now, but the YouTube star has proven time and time again that where there is will there is a way, which is why it is certain that her life trajectory will only take her to even higher levels of success in the coming years.
