Venus Leone is a certified linguist, she's fluent in seven languages and has degrees in sound engineering as well as economics and commerce. She is a songwriter and music producer, voice and voice-over artist. She's also an actress and model. Venus Leone was born in Rimini, Italy, the daughter of a black Brazilian wonder-woman and an Italian abacist.
