Friday Girl: Veronica LaVery
(birth name: Veronika Poloprutska) was born in 1991 in the Czech Republic to a Slovakian mother and a Polish/Irish father. She grew up in a small northern town called Vrchlabí, known as the Gate to the Giant Mountains (Krkonose) of the Czech Republic. While in Vrchlabí, Veronika attended both an art and dance school along with acting classes where she was trained to play musical instruments, sing, craft, act and dance. She was also a singer in a punk-rock band named Driak, where she was the only female, and only 15yo(!). She has done various stage plays, band and dance performances and wasn’t shy about being seen and heard by masses. These creative years in such a young age gave Veronika a solid base for her future (completely unplanned) career in the entertainment industry.
