Student theatre of Opera and Florida rose of Tralee entrant Vic Sexton learned the craft sings in a local choir, but while cleaned in the parlor with grandpa in Kildare.

“As a child I wanted to help grandpa Eddie to milk the cows. He is a great tenor, so we will sing together while milking the cows and cleaning up afterwards,” says Victoria.

In 2001, the mother of Jacqueline Victoria, a hairdresser, was given a Green card in the United States. Three years later she, her husband Edward and daughter Victoria, Alexandra and Charlene raised her wand from her home Rathmuck, co Kildare in Ocala, Florida.

Victoria says the biggest adjustment moving to the other side of the world was the weather.

“It’s so warm in Florida. My blood is too thick for warmth. I was lucky in that I can still go back to Kildare several times a year and you can visit a lot of relatives,” she says.

Grandfather of Victoria owns a successful farm Kildare food products and is a sponsor of the contest rose of Tralee.

“I grew up on this farm and try to get back there as much as possible. Every Christmas, I returned to help on the farm and feed the animals,” says 24-year-old.

“At Christmas I play the role of Holly Elf for Santa village there’s always a lot of fun and work in a café too.”
