Beverly Hills Magazine: Give us a little background about yourself…Where did you grow up, education, training, etc.?

Victoria Vesce: I grew up in a small town in North Carolina on a Buffalo farm. I went to NC State University where I studied Journalism. During my time at NC State University, I became an NBA Dancer for the Charlotte Hornets. I was an NBA dancer from 2014-2017. My last year dancing after I had been to Shanghai Global Games and the 2016 Olympics with the NBA, I was diagnosed with a rare brain and neck tumor during my third year with the NBA while trying to apply to law school. I had surgery and 31 rounds of radiation having to retire from dancing. I still decided to start law school and go part time in South Carolina! During my healing time, I went through adjusting to being partially deaf, as well as, during my last year in law school I dealt with the passing of my best friend, my mom. Through my grief and isolation, I found my purpose and passion for life which landed me in SI Swim and pursuing all my dreams.

Beverly Hills Magazine: How did you discover modeling?

Victoria Vesce: I did my first pageant when I was 18 years old. I was a farm girl and never had worn makeup, so it was a whole new experience for me. At the pageant, I was discovered and my passion for modeling and the glamorous life began!

Beverly Hills Magazine: How do you prepare for a photoshoot?

Victoria Vesce: I also make sure my nails are groomed, my hair is clean, and that I feel good. I make sure to get adequate rest and gua sha everyday.

Beverly Hills Magazine: Who or what have been your inspirations?

Victoria Vesce: My mom has always been my inspiration. She is my purpose and drive to keep going in life. She was my number 1 supporter and always helped me achieve my dreams. If I could be half the woman she was, I’d be making it in life.

Beverly Hills Magazine: What projects are you currently working on or have worked on in the past?

Victoria Vesce: Working on growing more of my social media platforms and growing my YouTube and podcast, finishing writing a book, and some other secrets up my sleeve.

Beverly Hills Magazine: What are your Dream Campaigns you would love to pose for?

Victoria Vesce: Guess has always been a top brand of mine!

Beverly Hills Magazine: Do you have a Life Motto, Quote, Bible Scripture that you live by?

Victoria Vesce: My motto right now is one of Turning Your Pain into Power.

Beverly Hills Magazine: What do you think of “Modeling Industry?”

Victoria Vesce: I think it’s still askew. There’s a lot of nepotism still in the industry, and if someone has a lot of social media presence they’ll get seen over people who have worked hard to where they’ve gotten in the industry. I think a lot of themes of body positivity and change in the industry is still stagnant and just a marketing tactic, but still there’s more change needed.

Beverly Hills Magazine: You were diagnosed with multiple Paraganglioma, a brain-skull tumor and a carotid body tumor, how did you find peace in the midst of your health struggles?

Victoria Vesce: Faith and Family. Luckily all my family was still alive while undergoing my sickness and I was blessed to have such a supportive family to help me through such a dark time. Faith helped me through a lot. Really honing into God and putting my trust in Him in that situation was honestly what truly kept me going.

Beverly Hills Magazine: How do you take care of your Spiritual Self?

Victoria Vesce: I meditate and take time daily to rejuvenate my mind, body, and spirit. Working out also helps my spiritual self.

Beverly Hills Magazine: How has God let you know that He is with you on your journey of life?

Victoria Vesce: There’s been times where I’ve been like “only God could’ve done that” because there’s no way I did it alone.

Beverly Hills Magazine: If you could have one prayer answered right now, what would it be?

Victoria Vesce: Bringing my mom back is one I wish could happen, but bringing my mom’s spirit into mine is one I pray everyday to not only keep her alive but to keep me going.

Beverly Hills Magazine: If you could have one Super Power what would it be?

Victoria Vesce: Omnipresent. I wish I could be in multiple places at once. I’m always overbooked and there’s so many things I wish I could be doing!

Beverly Hills Magazine: Where do you hope to be in your career in 5 years?

Victoria Vesce: I hope to solely be working for myself and creating a company that helps not only with mental health but growing your own brand. Also, in 5 years I want to start creating a family of my own.

Beverly Hills Magazine: What advice would you give to other aspiring models out there?

Victoria Vesce: Just be yourself. This industry in the beginning kept telling me you have to look a certain way, talk a certain way, do certain things…and in all honesty I followed that path at first and I was not happy. I’ve gotten more just being true to who I am and doing what’s best for me.

Beverly Hills Magazine: Where can readers go to keep up with you? (Social media, website, etc)
