Have you ever wondered who the people behind Living Fort Wayne are? Or maybe you’re curious about the different things our team does every day that make Living Fort Wayne the go-to destination for all the great things happening in our city. In this new spotlight series, we’ll be featuring a few of our amazing volunteers who will share a bit about their contributions to Living Fort Wayne and what they do outside of their volunteer work with us. Today we are spotlighting Living Fort Wayne’s Chair, Victoria Sarjeant! What is your role with Living Fort Wayne and why did you decide to volunteer for our blog? My role with Living Fort Wayne is Chair. I decided to volunteer because I was already a blogger and I thought it would easily fit into my current personal activities. I also wanted to get involved with YLNI for a while and this seemed like the perfect area to get my start. I started as a writer in July of 2017 and became Vice Chair in November of 2017. I became Chair in early June 2018. Tell us one thing about your life outside of Living Fort Wayne  I love to stay busy volunteering, blogging, or making crafts. I am active with the Emerging Leaders Alliance and Big Brothers Big Sisters. If I am not working with any of those things, I am probably watching Netflix with my cats, Jacob and Amber. If you could live any other place in the world, besides Fort Wayne, where would you live and why? If it was a different country, I would have to say Norway. That fits since most of my heritage is in the Scandinavian countries. If I went to any other city in the US, it would have to be Boston or Seattle. I am obsessed with Revolutionary War era history and Boston is full of it. I love Seattle because I love the scenery around the city and the atmosphere. I also love Maine! If you had a friend coming in from out of town, what is the one can’t miss thing you would show them or do with them in Fort Wayne? I would most likely take a visitor out to eat at a local restaurant or bar. Normally I take people to Wine Down, Hoppy Gnome, or JK O’Donnell’s. People don’t come somewhere and expect to go to a chain. I think those are all great examples of the unique places we have to offer. I also have friends that come just to go to DeBrand Fine Chocolate. Growing up in central Indiana, we didn’t really have a place like that...
