NEW BREMEN — Victoria Wente considers herself shy — when she used to visit the fire station with her firefighter father, for example, she said it took a long time to be comfortable talking to people.
But that reticence has never kept her from going after what she wants.
The senior said several times, “I want what I want,” adding that she probably gets the trait from her father, who is also very focused.
“It’s made me driven,” Wente said “I have goals, and I want to get to them.”
