Victoria is a technology and learning lover who enjoys helping others while doing what she loves. In early 2017, she and a group of students worked together as a team to develop an app concept for the Verizon App Challenge. Their app was called Smile Time, and it allowed users to send kind compliments or inspirational quotes to others. They thought this could help solve the problem of depression and improve self-esteem. They ended up winning best in state for the middle school level in Nebraska. Their app concept also inspired Victoria to get involved in the community and help others. She has done lots of volunteer work at DoSpace, a local technology library. She was also a summer intern at UNO. In the future, Victoria hopes to go to college and get a degree for computer science.
