This blog wanted to get a more personal look into the personality of this rising BDPA leader. We asked Victor to give brief answers to some odd questions. We hope you enjoy this new feature that we simply call, 'Long Story Short...'

  1. Craziest thing you've ever done? - Has to be ziplining in the Georgia trees. Definitely exhilarating and something I thought I’d never do. I’m actually “considering” doing it again.
  3. Favorite food you'd take with you on a desert island? - Hotdogs/rice
  5. Favorite Way to de-stress after a long week? - Hanging with my family. Watching basketball.
  7. How you kill time in airports? - Playing apps on phone
  9. Simple things that make you happiest? - Seeing other people pursue their dreams
  11. Who You'd Like to Meet? - President Barack Obama

Victor is an outstanding leader for his chapter!  I don't think that Victor is alone in wanting to meet President Obama! I'd love to see him at one of our upcoming national conferences!
