Meet Bold Idea Mentor Victoria


Meet Victoria Summerville - a UNT Dallas business student and Bold Idea mentor. Learn how an early admiration for her dad led to engaging Oak Cliff students in technology today.

What is something many people don't know about you?
Something most people don’t about me is that I love helping people. It really makes my day when I’ve done something to help someone else, even if it’s small.

How did you become interested in technology?
My dad initially got me interested in technology. He’s always love airplanes and his job allows him to work in aviation as well as with the engineers who develop and create aircrafts for the military.

What are you studying in college?
I am currently studying business with a focus of HR.

What are you working on now?
I am working towards completing my bachelors then going into graduate school.

What have you gained from being a mentor? What was your most memorable moment while mentoring?
I’ve gained an increased in-depth understanding of diverse perspectives and personalities.

Is there anything that you wish you could tell your younger self about coding?
I would tell myself to start practicing at a younger age so I could have mastered it by this point.

What is it about Bold Idea's mission that really connects with you?
The younger generations are our future, and I think it is important to engage them into the advancing world of technology and I’m glad to be apart of an organization that supports that.
