George Finds His Message in the Music
George came to College Match as a junior in Sacramento, CA, with deep concern about what he could possibly offer a university that they would want. He hated competition, preferring to create and collaborate with others. He had no interest in sports or other competitive extra-curricular activities. His true passion was hip-hop music, and he had not had much support from his school or family to pursue his dream.
College Match encouraged George to find creative ways to develop his passion. While studying for the SAT exams with his friends, he noticed how they struggled to understand pre-Calculus concepts. College Match suggested he try to write about it, and with that boost of confidence, he wrote, recorded and produced hip-hop songs about the fundamentals of calculus, which his friends loved. He quickly gained recognition at his school, and he became an online sensation! His recordings are used in classrooms across the country.
George was able to use his creative mind to help his students and help himself to stand out in the sea of kids who struggle to find their voices. He went on to be attend University of California, Los Angeles, surrounded by talented men and women who share his passion for music and truth.
