2018 Dogwood Queen

Victoria Lauren Patience Belew

Victoria is currently a freshman at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. She is pursuing a nursing degree with ambitions to one day obtain her Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and then eventually work for the Center of Disease Control (CDC) or the World Health Organization (WHO). Victoria has recently been accepted into the transfer student Honor Society called Tau Sigma. She enjoys being active, spending time outdoors, hunting, shopping, talking, and laughing. Victoria is passionate about sharing happiness and positivity to everyone she encounters. She believes there is always light even in the darkness, Jesus is that light, and we can show the love of Jesus to others in their deepest valleys by letting them know that they are not alone, “The light shines in darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it,” John 1:5.  Victoria believes everyone deserves to feel loved, and that is one of the best gifts to others.
