Hello, my name is Victoria Valenzuela.

In May 2017, I earned my Bachelors of Science in Marketing from the W.P. Carey School of Business, and originally planned on pursuing a Master’s degree focus in public relations.

Once I started my Journalism Skills course, I caught the bug. Writing, filming and editing consumed me, and I can’t imaging pursuing a career in a field other than Broadcast Journalism.

Thank you for your interest in Arizona Mining!
