Yet, what happened next was a synthesis of survivor’s instinct and kindness from his high school friends, who offered this boy without a home, shelter and support in theirs.

He found his voice when he picked up a video camera and told his story. He found a family when the film teacher invited him to live with hers.

Later, Victor aced several advanced placement tests, mastered the Russian language and earned national accolades for his film work. Next fall, he’ll attend Texas A&M University and study bio-chemistry on full scholarship.
