When Luciana was asked for her advice to someone who is just starting out, she said: "Believe in yourself, be honest with yourself and follow your instincts. A lot of people will try to give you advice and put you down, but you need to sell yourself. You really need to believe in yourself. There are a lot of doors that could be closed to you. But if the door isn’t open, go open a window. Find another route."

"Believe in yourself, be honest with yourself and follow your instincts. There are a lot of doors that could be closed to you. But if the door isn't open, go open a window. Find another route."
