Born in Dnipro, Ukraine, Viktoriya was the daughter of Tatyana Lazarenko and Vlad Manasyan. The family left Ukraine and arrived in the United States in 2002.
She attended Loesch Elementary School in Philadelphia and Holland Middle School and was a 2016 graduate of Council Rock South High School.
While in high school, Viktoriya was a member of the student advisory board which appears before the Council Rock School Board several times a year to report on activities. She was assigned to report on activities at the Middle Bucks Institute for Technology where she took classes.
Shortly after graduation, Manasyan enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserves and made several trips back to visit CRSHS after she finished her basic training last year.

She was a student in the current semester and she also served as a Bucks County Ambassador, leading campus tours as well as a member of the BCCC National Honor Society of Leadership and Success.
