Victoria Humphrey will be joining the MOFF team this month! We are very excited to welcome her into our event planning efforts as we work to raise money to fund ALS research and patient care initiatives! Read a brief interview with Victoria below.
Q: Where are you attending college and what is your major?
A: I am a Cal Poly student majoring in Experience Industry Management with a concentration in Event Planning
Q: Why does event planning at MOFF interest you?
A: While planning events is an intriguing job, being able to plan events for MOFF that contribute to finding a cure for ALS is both intriguing and fulfilling work that I am excited to take on!
Q: What is your favorite fitness activity?
A: My favorite fitness activity is cheerleading as I was a collegiate cheerleader for the past four years
Q: What is your favorite slocal hangout?
A: My favorite place to hangout with friends and family is Avila Beach.
Q: Where you see yourself in 5 years?
A: In 5 years I see myself starting my own business, planning and executing events for causes I find passion for.
Q: What are you surprisingly good at?
A: I am surprisingly good at calligraphy, I love using this skill to make home decor.
PSA: The final question to this interview may seem rather dark because it deals with death. That being said, the fatal nature of ALS brings death to the forefront and causes people living with ALS and their caregivers to grapple with the concept on a daily basis. MOFF has been operating as a grant making nonprofit within this space for 8 years now. We have seen too many incredible people have their lives cut short because of ALS. It is important to bring the urgency associated with living life in the face of death into our fundraising efforts.
Q: What is your relationship with death?
A: Death used to be my greatest fear, but after experiencing more deaths within my life I have grown to appreciate it. Death is still something I fear, but I have accepted that without it life is not as extraordinary.
