Be Part of the Momentum: Victoria Caña (STEINHARDT ’16)
Every great dream begins with a great dreamer. Growing up in a blue-collar suburb of Las Vegas, Victoria kept her aspirations to herself, because she was told dreams only lead to disappointment. She spent her days reading, envisioning the novel she wanted to write and the college path she sought to pursue. From her first day on NYU’s campus—made possible only by generous scholarship support—Victoria walked through every door of opportunity open to her. “Every moment at NYU made me more employable, gave my life meaning, and made me believe that anything is possible,” she says. “I will never forget the impact the generosity of NYU donors has had on my life.”
