We had the good fortune of connecting with Vicky Humphries and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Vicky, what’s your definition for success?
I define success as being positive, straightforward and take risks in life. You will go along way when you are Positive!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am an event planner, plus-size model, brand ambassador, influencer and photographer. It was along road but it was worth the fight. I went from drugs and alcohol to who I am today. I am 6 yrs clean. So the road was confusing and long at first but I got where I need to be in life. I was learning everything new. I was a new person in life. In rehab they said it will take up to 2-3 yrs to get my mind right, which it did. I am looking forward to see what life has in store for me in the future.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them to Lake Wylie. We will rent a boat also some jet skis too. We will enjoy the day on the lake. We will go to Papa Doc’s Shore Club for food and drinks for them. I would also take them to Lake Wylie Pizzeria. There are a lot of restaurants near the lake. We will also go to the Epicenter for nightlife.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to give a shoutout to Solo Artist Saxx. He was there for me when I needed to learn all I can about the entertainment industry. He said to follow your heart and remain positive!
