Victoria is a passionate writer who pens our “Weekly Passport” and “Digital Detox” columns. With her talent and business development experience, she also aids EA’s various campaigns and upcoming initiatives.
Victoria Freyre’s deep seeded love of writing dates back to her first completed work, a five chapter story she penned at age 12, chronicling the unrequited love of a teen for her next door neighbor. Ever since then, writing has a been a constant devotion and necessity in her life. Whether she is jotting down bits of wacky conversation between her unsuspecting friends or writing what she thinks will be the quintessential great american novel, she can always be found armed with some kind of messy notebook and various multi-colored pens. Born and raised in the humid suburbs of Miami, Victoria currently resides in the delicious city of Chicago with her boyfriend and her slightly maladjusted pup. She is thrilled to bring her distinct observations to the Everyday Ambassador community.
