Victoria Young is a University Innovation Fellow at Texas Tech University. Unlike most students, she entered university without a major, but with a general passion for knowledge. This passion led her to complete an undergraduate research project with ants which ignited a fascination in biology and lead her to become a Cell and Molecular Biology major. Keeping with her fascination of biology and bugs, she worked a summer internship in a fly laboratory, in of all places...a hospital. It was here she developed an understanding of the gaps entrepreneurs can fill in the biomedical world. Since Victoria believes in the positive impacts of education, she weekly volunteers mentoring students in a local unprivileged elementary school. She also is a musicophile who regularly DJs at her university’s radio station.
