Victor has taught hundreds of students as an educator and improved the lives of thousands of students, faculty, and staff as a senior university administrator. Here are the voices of a few of them – come back soon for more.

Former Students

As a Graduate Teaching Assistant and Lecturer at the University of Florida, Victor led discussion sections for undergraduate students, designed curriculum, and taught courses in Western European Politics, Comparative Politics, and International Relations at the Department of Political Science. Here are some of the students he taught:
"Victor has shown his commitment to education, opportunities and students, but most importantly, he has shown that he can, and has, 'served those who could do nothing for him.' I believe that this is one of the most important qualities that a leader can possess." "Victor is the kind of person that genuinely cares about others. I really want to see more people like him in government. I’m so excited that he’s running because I can’t wait to see all the things he can do."

"Victor is a phenomenal educator, but beyond that he was a tremendous mentor to me as well." "Everything Victor did was so well executed, it was just done properly. And that’s why I think he would be an extremely good elected official."

"Victor is intelligent and an outside the box thinker. He never settled for an average answer from a student and always pushed us to think outside the norm, that gave me the confidence to become a better student day by day. I believe he will do the same in political office, he doesn't settle and is always pushing for something better. He will do great things for San Francisco." "Victor was very thoughtful and engaging, and the material was always interesting. He made sure that we weren't only being lectured at, but actually set up little simulations so that we could interact with the concepts and see them at work. I think he will be a great elected official because he was a great teacher, and teachers make the best leaders."

"Junior Fellows was one of my most valuable experiences at the University of Florida. Not only interesting but motivating to reach for something greater. Thanks for setting up such a great program and good luck in your endeavors!" "Victor played a huge role in helping me succeed in class. He reviewed my study guides and explained the material in a detailed but simple manner which helped me comprehend the information better. Thanks to his help, I was able to feel confident in taking more advanced political science classes after my first year of college."
