We had the good fortune of connecting with Caro Cappiello and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Caro, looking back, what do you think was the most difficult decision you’ve had to make?
Believing in myself. Because you have no guarantees just the satisfaction of doing what you want and dream. The hardest part is doing it, the first step. “jumping to it”, then like water flowing to the right path, everything flows. With up and downs but flows. Its hard to let go of the security and comfort zone, leading to nowhere. Thats where confidence is all you need to. move forward.
I have to say that as soon as I started believing in me, everything changed for good.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Being a voice over in a new country is not easy, but not impossible. I am from Argentina and I am what we call Locutora Nacional, this is a career to perform any kind of job that has to do with voice, voiceover, hosting, anchor, dubbing, radio or tv. 3 years of training to perform professionally and with a license. When I got here I had no contacts, no references, or guide. I had to recreate myself to be able to perform in what is called “Neutral Spanish”, having an agent, a manager… all things I never heard before or had to deal with.
Luckily with effort and determination I was able to find my spot here and everyday is a challenge. One of the most important lessons I learned is that you have to be who you are, thats the best way of shine in everything you do. Otherwise is like you are cheating to yourself and the road is a hundred times harder, because at the end of the day is not who you are.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Los Angeles and California have beautiful places to go and eat and have fun. Mi ideal itinerary is jumping in the car, with hot “mate” ( Argentinian infusion ) early in the morning and driving to the beach.
Sitting in the shore watching the sea and having great conversations, do a picnic and wait for the sunset in cozy blankets.
This last year we had to face a pandemic and be far from who we love, this changed everything, now I am looking forward to share moments with my love ones. Enjoy the nature and company. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband Diego for sure, because we are a team. We have a beautiful family of 4 and we encourage each other to persue our dreams. and work really hard together in order to achieve them.
