Initiator of MusiCare for Kids
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Victoria is motivated by this quote written by Eleanor Roosevelt and tries to apply it to all aspects of her life. Victoria has always loved to sing and wanted to find a way to combine it with community service, another important part of her life. Together with her fellow members, this idea became a reality. For Victoria, MusiCare for Kids is the perfect way to share her joy of singing while helping others.
