Victor O.


Early in his career, Victor realized that he had just the right amount of interests and professional indecision to remain busy for the rest of his life. Passionate about medicine, public health, and creative writing, Victor spent four years at Howard University jumping between conducting research with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and spearheading a children’s book series about the New York African Burial Ground. Upon graduating summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa, he was awarded the Howard University Student Star Award for his servant leadership. Victor is now a medical student at Harvard Medical School, where he spends too much time learning about the slightly audible sounds from the end of his stethoscope.

Victor has worked to mentor students in many capacities, including facilitating his own tutoring business throughout college. He has taught in elementary to college level classrooms in DC, Detroit, and Ghana, and he has mentored dozens of students to make them more competitive for college and post-graduate programs. In addition to his experience editing books at W. W. Norton and Company publishing house, Victor has also helped students craft their personal statements for application processes.  

When he is not being a busy medical student, Victor likes to sing with his friends, lift weights, and enjoys quality time exploring the city of Boston.
