Victoria Martins is a 20-year-old super sophomore, from Brazil. She has a lot of fun doing things for Crusader News, so she decided to stay for one more year just to be a part of Crusader one more time (just kidding, she is doing the lab tech program, but she also loves Crusader). Martins spends her free time asleep, because she is a busy woman about to get married, doing school full-time, work-studying and taking care of her house. She also loves to travel and study.
