Alright I’m Victoria! I’m a freshman in highschool and I live in New Jersey
What inspires you everyday
I’m inspired by nature, it’s so intriguing and beautiful and complex that I always have to take a minute to appreciate it. It inspires me to be creative and outgoing, which is why I’m a photographer! I’m also inspired by my friends and the outlook they have; how they speak out against injustices that they see as well as being willing to educate others! I try to incorporate their strive to improve society into my everyday life
What is something you would change about people in the world
Something I would change about people in the world is their patriarchal views. One gender is not superior to another. Women should be equal to men but that has yet to be accomplished!
I’m not saying that everyone has patriarchal views but it is such a major factor that prevents women from having the same rights as men
What is your view on society today
Generally I view society in an optimistic way, it’s striving to improve! But there are so many setbacks that I cannot say it’s good. With the presidency, lack of respect for women, and the constant racism and discrimination seen today I am utterly shocked and saddened. Basically society needs to get its shit together and starting working towards equality between races, genders, and sexualities
What is something you’ve struggled with
I’ve struggled with being in a family that doesn’t have the same values and opinions that I have. It’s hard knowing that I can’t 100% trust my parents because they don’t understand my perspective on certain issues and topics.
What is a positive message you would give others
Probably that worrying about the past isn’t going to get you anywhere in the future!
Last question what is a goal you would like to achieve in the future
A huge goal of mine is to become a professional photographer since it is a passion of mine at the moment. I would love for my photos to gain recognition because I work so hard!
