About Me

Hi, I’m Victoria. I’ve lived in Fort Worth, Texas for 20 years before enrolling at Sewanee: The University of the South in Tennessee. I’m currently a junior history major, art history and business double minor, and after graduating I hope to start a career in the fashion industry. In my free time I enjoy drawing, reading, sewing, knitting, cooking, and other various things you might find your grandmother doing instead of a twenty-something college student. I believe that shopping should be a sport, and your eyeliner should be sharp enough to kill a man.

For the next five months I have the amazing opportunity to live and learn in Istanbul, Turkey. I will be studying Middle Eastern history and art history at Bogazici University, focusing on Ottoman history during European imperialism and Byzantine art and architecture. During my time at Bogazici I hope to attain a more nuanced understanding of Turkish culture and Middle Eastern society and challenge preconceived biases and stereotypes about the region.
