Victoria Doramus is a prolific individual with a variety of work experience. Her experience spans from creative to business, print to digital. She attended the University of Colorado, and ran the course for four years to earn her bachelor’s degree in mass communication and journalism. Her work as a writer proved that her interest in journalism worked to her benefit. One of her most notable moves was volunteering for the Amy Winehouse foundation, where she devoted several hours to undo the effects of addiction.
After volunteering for so long and getting a first hand look at the contagious nature of positive doing, Victoria Doramus set out to reproduce the optimism she saw in the Amy Winehouse foundation. Her, along with her coworkers, helped set up many charities as well as started her own. Some of these would include Room To Read and Best Friends Animal Society. Room To Read’s main audience is children of low-income neighborhoods and it focuses on giving them the tools and support to gain a good education and improve literacy. Best Friends Animal Society seeks to protect animals liable for mistreatment in shelters. Doramus has significantly reduced the number of animals killed in shelters, narrowing the count down to roughly 2 million per year.
Doramus’s gracious response towards a world in hurt is all that one could hope to do. Going from a personal assistant of a film director, to a writer, to a philanthropist, Victoria Doramus has the gift of healing. The world has a lot to gain from people willing to follow in her footsteps.
