10 Questions with Victoria…

Where is your favorite place to travel? I haven’t traveled as much as I’d like, but probably LA. My grandparents live there so it feels like a second home to me.

Where would you love to visit? Japan. I’d like to do a tour of the temples.

Who’s your favorite celebrity? The mathematician Leonhard Euler. Math was always my favorite subject and he sees the beauty in it, which I really admire.

What is a fun fact someone might not know about you? I really love comic books. When I draw, it is usually comic book related.

What is your favorite type of food? Japanese food. I like Kazoku on Speedway and Columbus. It’s old school Japanese and I love that it comes with soup, salad, and ice cream at the end.

What is your favorite thing to do in Tucson? I really like Raging Sage. It’s a little coffee place on Campbell. It’s so good. If you get there early enough and can get a scone, they’re amazing. I usually like to draw or read there.

Where is your favorite place on campus? Anywhere on the mall. I like sitting on the grass or the tables next to the mall. I also like to stop by the Einstein’s in the Union for iced coffee. It’s really strong and it helped me get through grad school.

What is your favorite thing about working with OGI? I really like how friendly and casual our Tech.Global team is. They are so easy to talk to. They are the most philosophical group of undergraduates I’ve ever met! I really like how diverse the office is, too – a lot of people with different backgrounds and a strong appreciation for different cultures.

How can you help OGI colleagues? Anything related to Tech.Global. If someone is unsure about the program or wants to know more about it, they can come talk to me.

What is your typical day like? I send emails, manage social media, write documents for Tech.Global, and meet with people across campus.
