Freshman year she participated in FTC team 1002 as a programmer, and that year the team advanced to the state competition after winning the Inspire award at a qualifier. Sophomore year, she was RoboChixx lead, a program created in the robotics club to encourage the participation of girls in STEAM related activities, and was on the VEX team 2003 as the lead programmer. Last year she was Design Lead for the FTC team 1002, and this year she continues to participate on the same FTC team.

She was President of Science Olympiad, Founder and Head of Wheeler's Flute for Thought Flute Choir, and now is the Vice President of Citizen Science Club. At Wheeler's STEAM Symposium last year, she displayed her engineering project: How to Build a Vietnamese T'rung, which is comparable to a marimba made of bamboo. She built it using a variety of tools including a chop saw and a belt sander. A summer ago she had an internship with CyberSmart, a company educating elementary school kids in cyber security and how to be a smart internet user. In addition, she attended Georgia Tech's camp for Music Technology. This past summer, Victoria went to GHP (Governor's Honors Program) for Engineering Design where she, along with two teammates, created a wearable synthesizer. Currently she is interning at Georgia Tech in Music Technology where she takes undergraduate and graduate classes. Victoria is working on programming music in Python there, along with sitting in on third arm for musicians that plays the drum project. Independently, she is working on creating a CAD file to 3D print a flute.
