Here is some of the praise her book has received:

"Few artists have the talent to create both visual images and words that combine to lift the spirit, but your impressive photographic art book One Nation, One Mission, One Promise has done just that. Your unique visual images combined with insightful poetry and prose inspires everyone to look at our history with fresh eyes."
- Geoffrey R. Berwind, Artistic Director, Historic Philadelphia, Inc

"The eloquence with which Victoria Medina balances the content of the poetry and famous quotes in this book is refreshing in an America where we often just see people critique and complain, "One Nation, One Mission, One Promise" does indeed celebrates the oath passed down to us through the Charters of Freedom - The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and the Bill of Rights."
- Luis Salgado, Broadway dancer, choreographer and director

"Victoria's spirit matches the spirit of this the work of art. She combines two creative means of expression into one book that I carried in my backpack for months. Beautiful, creative, and ever-memorable photographs combined with touching and honest poems, all with the sincerest Patriotic spirit. This book should be in every museum in D.C. and in stores all over the country. A no-brainer. An easy decision."
- Andrew Beall, Broadway musician and composer

"The book is a poetic and visually inspiring look into our rich history, the promises of our nation to its citizens, and what it truly means to be an American. The visual imagery is iconic and provides a refreshing reminder of where we come from, who we are, and how we can live up to the promises of our founders in a modern world. The book touches on every element of the promise that is America; Freedom, love, prosperity, security, responsible government for and by the people. The book will stand through the ages as a time capsule of sorts which resets our purpose in the modern world as it seamlessly weaves our past, present and future into the same quilt. The book is a must have for the patriot and serves as a great discussion piece for any coffee table or intimate cocktail party."
- Jay Taylor, Managing Partner, Taylor Louis LLP

"Victoria is a "Renaissance Woman" of the Arts and can seamlessly, and effectively, convey her vision in both words and visual imagery. Very, very few people are talented enough to do this (in particular, writing rhyming poetry that contains depth and complexity). In addition to her skill with the tools in her artist's tool box, Victoria's vision for the book is extraordinary and brilliant."
- Mary Reilly, Customs Catering
