Victor was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. He graduated from Uplift North Hills Preparatory in Irving where he was a National Merit Commended Scholar and AP Scholar with Distinction. He was currently a senior at University of Texas at Dallas majoring in mathematics with a minor in computer science.
