Christian Challenge


Written on 06/23/2020

I am happy to introduce Victoria to y'all.  She has such a beautiful heart that is  evident to all who know her.   Take a minute to read her answers and then drop her a note.   Getting to know this special lady will be well worth your time.

  1. What is your favorite memory growing up?
    1. When I was 4 years old, my mom would walk me over to my tia’s house down the street to watch over me in the mornings as my older sisters would go off to school and my mom would go to work.  My tia would let me eat my cousins’ cereal that would change your milk into chocolate and put cartoons on as I waited for my dad to get off work. 
  2. Fill in the blank…My biggest wish is ________.
    1. To one day fully have faith and give myself to God.
  3. If you had an entire day free and money was no issue, what would you do and where would you go?
    1. I would travel to Arizona where I used to live and visit my friends that I miss.  Then I would take us to visit California and explore.  We would see the beach, taste authentic foods, listen to music on the streets, shop downtown, and experience the nightlife as a night of reunion. 
  4. What is your career dream?
    1. My career dream is to help children that have special disorders that require more attention, or children in general that need more guidance.  I’m thinking of becoming an autism therapist as my top career choice.  My oldest nephew is slightly autistic, and I want to help kids and families who need professional support.  My other career dreams would be to become a school counselor, children’s psychologist or a special education teacher. 
  5. Fill in the blank…How would your closest friend answer this question:  She is ________!
    1. Funny!  Though I’m very quiet and shy, once I feel comfortable around someone, my true colors start to show and I don’t feel too awkward to show my sense of humor.
  6. What do you wish people understood about you?
    1. That just because I’m quiet, doesn’t mean I don’t want to talk and socialize.  Please include me!  I’m just very shy haha.
  7. When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried?
    1. Watching Angry Birds 2.  Sam from Challenge recommended it.  It’s hard to make me laugh, let alone to cry from laughter.  I give my thanks to Sam for the movie hype and for eventually helping me give in and for making me laugh. 
  8. If you could make three wishes and there were no limitations on what you could request, what would you wish for?
    1. Wish #1 – Grant my parents money.  They deserve to get out of being low income.  My mom had to quit work to take care of her growing daughters and her mental health.  My dad worked all his life until health complications arose that gave him no choice but to retire early.  I wish my parents could live in peace without worrying about money. 
    2. Wish #2 – I wish for a healthy earth.  No more global warming.  No more harm to the sea life in our oceans.  No more pollution in the air.  I want to bring back our earth’s beauty. 
    3. Wish #3 – End world hunger.  I want to provide children, families, and the elderly the nutrients they need.  I never want people to struggle to find food to survive. 
  9. If you could tell your “high school” self anything, what would it be?
    1. “I know life is hard and your relationship is hurting you, but don’t give up.  You will find happiness and make good friends in a group called Christian Challenge.  You will work on growing closer to God again and they’ll support you and be there for you no matter what.  You’ll be free from that unhealthy relationship and you will know what love you deserve.  Things will get better.”
  10. What question do you wish we would ask?  And what is your response?
    1. What is your favorite music and why? 
    2. My favorite music is Spanish!  Specifically, reggaeton and bachata.  I grew up listening to Selena who was a major influence, along with my dad playing his salsa and cumbia CD’s in the car.
