Meet Victoria Lopez
There came a time in my life when I had to ask myself this question: Am I just someone who likes to write, or am I a writer? My first novel, “Fire in May,” is the result of such a thought, and I am so proud — for, truly, it did stem from the part of my heart which had been reserved. I can now be happily found writing “Poetry on Demand” for my beautiful community of the Rio Grande Valley, or writing in my beautiful studio at the McAllen Creative Incubator in McAllen, Tx.
The idea of creation is nearly beyond words — more than words; weddings, the arts, birthdays, gatherings held in celebration, they are not merely events, but experiences. These experiences will become stories shared over dinner, in laughter with family and friends. Each creation should be beyond words, beyond every detail, and this is truly the inspiration behind each event that I create. A moment which is unforgettable, and forever close to the heart. That is H&K Event Planning.
The Creative Call To Action [CC2A] is a non-profit organization that I founded in order to bring a sense of community among local, aspiring artists. It is our mission to inspire individuality through art and innovation. Our collaborative organization focuses on showcasing local artistic talent, and unique venues, while creating one-of-a-kind cultural experiences. Thus far, and we are very proud to say, that we have become, and will continue to be, a pillar of encouragement for our artistic youth.
My mission is simply to inspire. I undoubtedly believe that each person has been created and enabled for a significant purpose. Life has a way of pulling us away from the callings of our heart; and that obligation can derail us from focusing on those things that truly bring happiness into our everyday. My message is spoken by a tongue which does not lash and an ear that listens. We must first become who we were meant before we can accomplish all that is ours. #YouAreWorthy

There is no doubt that we have all been plagued by that of worry, and truly plague is the proper word. Worry sweeps unwelcomely over us and robs us of those things which are undeniably ours – hope, health, peace, happiness, wellness, and above all, love. To this matter, I have no rebuttal other than Read more about Worry Doesn’t Define You[…]
It begins by beginning. Now, having had “broken into” the world of writing, I am often approached by aspiring writers asking for the “way in.” Of course, I try to help in any manner that I can, but truly, there is no secret. I had always considered myself a writer, but nothing happened for Read more about You’re a Writer[…]
Lift your chin to listen — do not blame your circumstance nor that which has burdened you; such tribulation does not keep you from attaining the truth you dearly seek.

Steady now, for feet do fail, they stumble; The heart does ache, but fall not to your hand and knee. Stand. Stand and go to the place that calls your heart. Fall, instead, to silence, for the mind does overwhelm that of our wild hearts. All that was has now passed, refuse to stay in Read more about Steady Yourself[…]
We are quick to action when it comes to defending ourselves; yes, and as it should be. Yet how often do we find ourselves working to improve that which was questioned to begin with? Personally, I find the deconstruction of my character to be rather uplifting. Is it bothersome to know that others are speaking Read more about You Are Worthy[…]
Take a step aside from that which is said to glitter like gold, and see it for what it truly is — fleeting. And that which has glittered, that which has caught our eye and kept us from that that our hearts have undoubtedly yearned for; yes, it has glittered and now it is gone.

The question, much more often than not, Serves greater purpose than the answer itself.
