Biography

Valeria Jaramillo was born in Cali, Colombia in 1991. She began her studies at Berchmans School and graduated in 2012 as a Bachelor in Visual Arts at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Cali.

Nowadays she is determined to pursue her acting and directing career in the film industry. She is planning to continue her studies abroad. Her biggest dream is to tell stories that stem from aesthetic experiences and human passions. She considers that filmmaking is not the seventh art because is one of the most recent ones, but because it embraces the rest.

Valeria comes from a family of three brothers. Her father is a physicist and her mother is a psychologist. Her sister is an electronic engineer and lives in Santa Clara, California. Her oldest brother, Lucas is a music composer and lives in Saint Petersburg, Russia, a city that has had an amazing influence on the work of this artist.
