Student Spotlight: Victoria (Vicky) Hume

Originally from Montreal, Quebec, Canada, Victoria attended John Carroll University in University Heights, Ohio for her undergraduate studies where she majored in Economics as well as double minoring in both French and English. A native French speaker being from Montreal, Victoria is trilingual-being fluent in English, Spanish, as well as French. These language skills proved useful to her as she was a French and Spanish tutor while at John Carroll University.Vicky Blog Pic.JPG

Before Duquesne University and the MBA Sustainability Program she worked as the Social Media Manager for a Pittsburgh area swimming school. However, she always knew she wanted to get her MBA. When asked why this program, she said, “I’ve always had an interest in sustainability and I wanted to participate in something that incorporated sustainability and would be useful to my future.” After graduation in August 2017, Victoria hopes to find a job at a company or economic research firm that will allow her to have a positive impact on her community, such as becoming a Sustainability Manager at a Pittsburgh area firm. In her spare time Victoria enjoys to paint and take part in Duquesne University’s Net Impact club. In addition, Victoria enjoys living in Pittsburgh very much. She said her favorite thing about Pittsburgh is her ability to walk out of her Shadyside house and find something new and exciting everyday within walking distance.
