“I like joy; I want to be joyous; I want to have fun on the set; I want to wear beautiful clothes and look pretty. I want to smile and I want to make people laugh. And that’s all I want. I like it. I like being happy. I want to make others happy.”
“[On how he overcame racial dogma] I was taught that I had basic rights as a human being. I was taught that I was someone. I knew we had no money, still I was taught that I was someone. We had no electricity and no running water, still I was taught that I was someone. I had very little education. A year and a half, in fact, was all of the schooling that I was exposed to. Still I knew that I was someone.”
just some sassy vic moments // happy birthday to the hard-working, kind and lovely leader. Who is willing to do anything for her members. Her work ethic and dedication to her career is unparalleled. Even though she may be worn down from her activities she never lets it show and finishes every performance full of energy.

Happy birthday to the person who taught me to be myself no matter what. She showed us that no matter where are you from, how much do you weight, how tall you are, you can accomplish your dreams if you fight for them and never give up. Thank you for inspire me everyday, April.
13 years ago Antoine moved countries, left his family and language to follow his dreams, 6 years later he’s playing in first division. Then came Atleti, new obstacles but also opportunities. The rest is history, a really inspiring one.
I’ve seen him grow while facing the sweetest moments but also the most bitter defeats with a smile, turn into a super star that every brand and team wants, being the press of haters and the media but also the savior of every colchonero and french fan. So thanks for showing us that a ‘no, you’re not good enough’ is just a ‘keep trying’, that fame and money are just worth when you’re humble, that humor and self-confidence are the best weapon.
Grizi, Titi, Anto, huge things are coming because your talent, effort and kindness deserve it. I’m super proud of being part of #TeamGrizi, damn proud of you and this is only the beginning, personally and professionally, just wait boy.
