Hello! I'm Victoria.

 

I have worked in events, sports, and esports for over a decade. All my life I have had a passion for gaming, starting with a love for the Nintendo 64 (I still believe this is the best console ever made). It grew into a love for the Zelda and Kingdom Hearts series. As I got older, I fell in love with FPS games. I have been everything from player to team manager for various teams in the semi-professional level. Further into my career, I dove into the collegiate scene and fell in love. All I do is strive to create the best opportunities for students that I can. Whatever I do next, I just want to make sure I can help make the world a better place.

 My mission is to expand the opportunities for people who simply want to be a part of the industry. Esports and gaming are uniquely positioned to help people in ways no other industry can. I aim to amplify the voice of good and carve a path that many people can use to follow their dreams. I try to be a light amidst darkness and hope that one day I can make a difference to help other's dreams come true.
