Victoria prides herself on her academic achievements. She maintains excellent grades in school and her GPA is a solid 4.0. Like most teenagers, Victoria plays video games, but unlike most teenagers, Victoria only plays video games once all her schoolwork is completed. She is learning how to play basketball and really would like to play on a team. She has not decided on her future career goals yet, however; it would not be a surprise if they are centered around science or math.

Victoria is an excellent big sister who encourages her younger siblings to remain focused on their education so they may have all the opportunities for a successful future. A family for Victoria will need to be completely committed to preserving her sibling relationships and supporting Victoria’s desire to attend college.
