Throughout his life, Viktor had to face many challenges that we wouldn´t even think of, just for being Roma and Hungarian. In a society full of prejudices and hatred towards Romas, Viktor found his vocation in working with the hated ones to help them develop their potential and get an equal chance at quality education. Although Viktor did get his happy end, his path was not one of the easy ones, and as every human being, he also got influenced by society´s opinions. Viktor is a double minority in Slovakia. He is first, Roma, and second, Hungarian. Prejudices didn´t stop him from getting two university degrees and being a facilitator at the Roma Education fund. He works with Roma youth to develop their potential and to give them an equal chance at getting a good education. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx...
