Valeria from Mexico participated in a OneMinutesJr workshop in Mexico City in 2013. Her film When I dance, I feel big was nominated for the annual award and she was invited to Amsterdam for the awards weekend alongside 14 other participants from around the world. She now put her impressions into a short video, together with her emotions and her love. Thanks, Valeria! Read more about the 2013 OneMinutesJr awards and participate in 2014!
