BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Victoria Vesce has a message for anyone who says you can’t be beautiful and smart.
“If you want to be a model and a lawyer, and you have the time management ability, go for it. Life is short. You only have one life to live.”
For Vesce, a Boca Raton resident, former Charlotte Hornets dancer, and now a member of the Berman Law Group in Boca Raton, “life is short” is a reality she knows too well. Vesce was diagnosed with both a brain tumor, and carotid body tumor, several years ago. She is deaf in one ear. And she is constantly being checked for tumor growth.
“I still have a tumor in my head,” said Vesce. “I have twice a year MRI’s, but my health is very good.”
Vesce isn’t letting a brain tumor stop her from success — both real and what might be called “aspirational.” Her real success: she is waiting for results from the Florida Bar and expects to be a practicing attorney in Boca Raton within a few months.
Her aspirational success: she submitted a video to Sports Illustrated, thinking there was no way she’d be considered for the magazine’s annual Swimsuit Issue. But she was selected as one of fourteen finalists, and just returned from a shoot at Hard Rock Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
“I like to think and live outside of the box,” she said. “No one should believe that there is only one certain way to go in life.”
Vesce says the death of her mother, and fighting tumors, dancing for the Charlotte Hornets, and attending Charleston School of Law all during the same time period made her the strong, motivated person that she is today. She hopes to practice personal injury and family law once she officially passes “The Bar.”
“Strong women wear their pain like stilettos,” she said. “No matter how much it hurts, all you see is the beauty of it.”
