Victoria Huffman

ISC 2054 Assignment #1: Introduce Yourself

Hello! I'm Victoria Huffman! Welcome to my virtual "Me Poster!"

I am so excited to meet you!

I'm Victoria Huffman! I'm a freshman here at UCF. My favorite color is pink, I love wearing hair bows, and cupcakes are my favorite food.

I have lived in central Florida for all of my life. My family has been here for generations, and I'm not planning on leaving any time soon.

Disney is my hobby, passion, and obsession.

I hope to be an Imagineer someday. To elaborate, this branch of the company has been around ever since Walt Disney himself was planning the creation of Disneyland in California. They are responsible for dreaming up and creating the magic; every design detail is intricately planned by this elite group, and I want to be a part of it.

I decided to take part in the EXCEL/COMPASS program because I need help deciding what to do with my life. My dream is to be an Imagineer at Disney; I know that a variety of STEM fields can get me to that point, and I'm confident that I want to major in something STEM-related, but I need help finding the career path that's right for me. I am looking forward to taking this opportunity to learn more about my career choices and myself.

I am confident that EXCEL/COMPASS will help me to succeed in my first year of college. I think that the tutoring available in the EXCEL/COMPASS lab will help me to do well in my calculus classes. Also, I am excited to learn about all of my options for STEM career paths through the EXCEL STEM seminar course. I also hope that this program will help me to make new friends!

My current major selection is "undecided engineering." I think that I want to look into mechanical engineering, but I feel like I don't know enough about all of my choices to make an informed decision just yet.

Have you seen this Space Mountain car in the Engineering II atrium? When the ride cars were updated in 1989, the original system (that put two people in each seat and featured a different type of harness safety system) was replaced by these T-shaped safety bars created by UCF students! I want to be a part of something like this.

Selfies are fun.

Last time my sister and I were wandering around Disney, I told her that I would DEFINITELY be posting her not-great pictures online somewhere if she refused to take cute selfies with me. I forgot to post them that day, so I'm just going to put a few of them here instead.

(There. Now I didn't break my promise.)
