It wasn’t easy for Victoria Belo, more commonly known in the Philippines as Dra. Vicki Belo, to begin her journey of beauty. Before she became an acclaimed dermatologist and even before starting her empire that is the Belo Medical Group, she had her own struggles to fight which paved the way to where she is now.
In an interview by Cosmopolitan Philippines with Dra. Belo, the doctor said that she was a victim of bullying in her childhood years. She was teased for being ugly and fat, which made her all the more interested in the field of beauty. She dreamt of becoming someone who could make people feel beautiful and loved, which led her to be in the medical profession, particularly in the field of dermatology.
Earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of the Philippines Diliman in 1978, she then enrolled at the University of Santo Tomas for her degree in Doctor of Medicine in 1985. She also obtained a Diploma in Dermatology in Bangkok, Thailand in 1990.
