George was born and raised in a small neighborhood on the west side of Indianapolis, IN. Growing up, his interests spanned the sectors of education, criminal justice, and science until he finally discovered his calling to medicine during his senior year of high school. George then attended Indiana University (IU) on academic scholarship and pursued studies in biochemistry and sociology, graduating Phi Beta Kappa with High Distinction. His time at IU was rich with professional and academic experiences outside of the classroom. He served as president of U Bring Change to Mind (UBC2M)—an organization part of a national pilot program led by academy award winning actress, Glenn Close, that is dedicated to eradicating mental health stigma on college campuses. He also led the student strategic advisory and consulting body for IU’s eighteenth university president. He is now an MD candidate at Harvard Medical School with specialty interests in oncology or primary care.
George has experience working with students of varying content knowledge, learning styles, and grade levels. He particularly enjoys supporting students from disadvantaged backgrounds. He has served as a private tutor, peer coach, and youth enrichment advisor since college and has taken on more formal roles as an undergraduate teaching assistant in medical sociology and biochemistry. He is the staff organic chemistry tutor for his university’s academic support center. Outside of academic instruction, George adores mentorship -- he has a keen ability to help students from different backgrounds navigate the medical school admissions process.
Outside of school, George loves to run, read, watch a good crime movie, advocate for causes related to social justice, and spend time with his loved ones.
