Glory grew up in rural Virginia and attended Trinity College, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Summa Cum Laude (3.99 GPA) with a double major in Theater and Dance (President’s Fellow) and Biology (Honors) in 2017. During his undergraduate career, he enjoyed research and soon published as first author in two peer-reviewed biology journals, presented in venues such as the International Congress of Vertebrate Morphology, and obtained a summer fellowship during his junior year at Janelia HHMI. During his junior year, he also studied for the DAT and scored AA 24/ TS 24/ PAT 24. After graduating from Trinity, he was accepted to Harvard School of Dental Medicine.
Throughout Glory’s life, teaching has been a common thread binding his diverse interests. In high school, he worked as an instructor for elementary students learning Korean at a local language school. During his undergraduate years as a dance major, he taught choreography and movement theory to dancers in pieces he directed. Moving to Boston in the summer before his first year at Harvard, Glory worked under BoSTEM Scholars Academy, a novel non-profit, to create a biology curriculum based on the flipped classroom specialized for at-risk, disadvantaged high-school students and led the career advising committee..
In his free time, Glory enjoys finding wildlife during hikes and continues to dance for fun.
