Make it shine. Those three words act as a remedy for some high school students, as they are the words that made Tori Vega a superstar.

The hit show “Victorious” made its way onto Netflix in November, and fans everywhere were ecstatic. The plot starts with 16-year-old Tori abruptly singing in an annual showcase since her sister becomes unable to sing herself. After her outstanding performance, she was offered a spot at Hollywood Arts High School, a school for the musically and theatrically inclined. The rest of the plot entails her adventures with her new classmates turned friends.

The show itself is aimed towards younger children; however, this does not stop older generations from binging the entire show at once. It is that perfect childhood throwback that most teens need to remember the good old days.

“I’m glad Netflix added the show because it reminds me of when I used to watch it at home,” Arjun Menon (11) said. “I’m glad I get to relive that part of my childhood.”

Although many may not know about it, “Victorious” has roots within White Station. Its creator, Dan Schneider, was the senior class president to the class of 1982 at White Station. After graduating, he went on to create multiple hit shows including “Victorious,” “iCarly,” “Drake & Josh,” “Zoey 101” and many other popular shows. 

The essence of “Victorious” is not purely to entertain; its purpose is to also teach its audience members that their talents should never be hidden. They should “make it shine” because they are special and shouldn’t be afraid to show it.

“I think ‘Victorious’ is a great show to allow children and teens to see that using their talents is a good thing and to not be ashamed of what they are good at,” McKenzie Cornell (11) said.
