Giulini Wever can do it all. She is an actress, martial artist, celebrity fitness trainer, model and animal rights activist. Yet, what she seems to be best at is empowering people. In all of her ventures she uses the opportunity to help others. As a martial artist and a trainer she teaches others how to feel and be strong. As a model and an actress she uses her voice to tell stories that will drive an empowering narrative. And as an activist she speaks out against cruelty and injustice, helping those that cannot help themselves.
Giulini is smashing glass ceilings and teaching others to do the same. She is calculated, strong and disciplined, yet very compassionate and sets a great example for all to follow. We were delighted to get to know her better.

Favorite career moment to date?
Giulini Wever: There are so many moments in my life that I’m super grateful for, but one of the moments that sticks out is when I shot with Ronda Rousey for SELF Magazine.
I did not know that I was shooting with her until I got on set. And then I meet her and then they’re like, “Action.” And like, “Hey guys, run towards each other and punch each other, but don’t land it.” And I’m like, “This is great guys.” Thank God for my years of practicing martial arts because obviously she was at that moment, one of the world champions in the UFC.
It was an amazing, incredible experience. It sticks out to me the most because she’s an incredible woman and it was really nice working with her.
