Since guest-starring in her first television project in 2003, Victoria Justice – who turns 20 today – has seen her stock rise in Hollywood. From serving as the roommate to Britney’s sister Jamie Lynn Spears in Nickelodeon’s Zoey 101 to headlining her own series, Victorious, on the network, the half-Puerto Rican multi-hyphenate and Latina’s October 2012 cover girl is leading the way for the next generation of Latina superstars. To commemorate Justice’s cumpleaños, here’s a look at the 20 Things We Love About Her!
She’s Proud of Her Multicultural Heritage
The United States is commonly described as a melting pot of cultures and ethnicities; and Victoria Justice could easily be considered one of the country’s poster children. After all, she’s the product of an English-German-Irish father and a Puerto Rican mother. And the Nickelodeon star is proud to serve as a role model. “I think it's really cool that I can represent that sort of melting pot,” Justice once told Para Todos magazine. “I think that Latina girls and even guys need to be able to look up to someone who's similar to them on TV, and I think that’s really cool that I could be able to do that and that they can relate to me."
