JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It is Friday so that means it is time for Student of the Week!

This week we are featuring Victoria MacMillan, a freshman at Duval Charter School at Baymeadows. She said she loves to learn new things in school!

Outside of school she plays music and is currently studying the guitar and wants to be an English teacher in South Korea someday. Her favorite class each day is her speech class!

"That's an area I have struggled in, so I took the class. Now I am getting a lot better at speaking because here I am talking to a camera!" laughs Victoria.

She says talking in front of people used to terrify her, but the class has helped her work through that!

So congratulations Victoria, you are FCN's Student of the Week!

Here is what her nominator had to say:

"Victoria has always given back and helping others. She loves new challenges. She currently maintains high grades at her school and is in 3 clubs...speech & debate, anime and community service. Her goal is to be an English teacher on South Korea and has already studied the culture and is teaching herself the language. She is 14 years old and has a smile and sense of humor that is infectious. She played violin for 5 years, clarinet for 2 years, and currently plays electric guitar and bass. Oh and she wants to learn piano. Ask her how she feels about the world and she will give you a speech. She seems older than what she is."
