Starting a business, heading back to school, and writing my own book?!
Holding this incredible title has propelled me in directions I never thought I could reach. As Miss World America I have gained new business peers, travel opportunities and so many skills I will take with me for the rest of my life. Now that my year is drawing to an end, many have asked “what’s next for you?” and today I am excited to share with you my plans for the future!
Since I have competed for Miss Arizona, Miss World America and Miss World 2015, I have acquired an immense knowledge of what it takes to WIN. I have stood in the shoes of a contestant, a judge and an audience number.
This gained knowledge is owed to every single person who has contributed to my journey and helping me grow. From the bottom of my heart, I thank the people who have taught me everything I know. Now, I am proud to combine these skills I have learned into a one-stop-shop for ALL things pageant related. From styling wardrobe to acing interview and embodying a queen, Pageant Consulting with Victoria Mendoza will be a business dedicated to helping aspiring women achieve the titles they desire. More details about this endeavor will be included in a future post!
Along with growing this passion, I will be returning as a full-time student this fall. With only two more years remaining before achieving my undergraduate degree, I am eager to hit the books and study deeper into journalism and communication. Now, I’m returning with three internships and a whole lot of life experience (and TV interview practice) under my belt!
Finally, I am starting the early phases of writing a book about achieving your dreams at any age, any stage, from any walk of life. I am excited to be including exclusive memoirs from my year as Miss World America, working as a model and actress, and overcoming difficult personal challenges. This will be a TELL-ALL book with secrets I have never shared before. Additionally, my book will feature insight I’ve learned from powerful influencers (like the one and only, Joel Osteen!). This is a HUGE project I am looking forward to sharing with you all. PS. Are there any specific questions you would want answered in this book?
THANK YOU ALL for being supportive and loving always. Here’s to the next chapter, the next adventure!
