Born and raised in New York City, Noah knew that he would always be a Yankees fan when he watched them win the World Series in 2000. Sadly, it turned out he wasn’t quite as good at playing baseball as he was watching it, and decided to abandon his baseball prospects in order to study Biology and Spanish at the University of Chicago. There, he graduated Phi Beta Kappa and was honored as a Student Marshal at graduation for his service to the school. After working on clinical research with a team at NYU for a year, Noah is now a current medical student at Columbia University’s School of Physicians and Surgeons.
As an undergraduate, Noah was a Teaching Assistant for three iterations of biology classes focused on human physiology, leading large review groups and individual tutoring sessions. He also spent time during the year as a classroom instructor for Peer Health Exchange, teaching a variety of health topics to classrooms of ninth graders. Since graduating, Noah has focused on tutoring for the SAT and MCAT, and mentoring others on applying for medical school.
When Noah isn’t rooting for the Yankees, you can find him running and biking around the city, or cooking up large meals for friends (or just himself, when he’s really hungry).
