George is highly motivated and is driven by the goals of making positive impact and changing the world. Following a brain operation in Tanzania his life changed and was saved due to circumstances largely beyond his control. He spent two years recovering in London before embarking on this journey to Rio de Janeiro in January of 2017. He successfully started a grassroots NGO teaching, mentoring and inspiring children from the favela using tennis. George co-founded ACE and his mission has only heightened. He has never been more dedicated to making a real and sustainable impact to children living through hardship and poverty. What he does inspires him daily, and he wants to share his story with philanthropists, young people, schools and universities; spreading and sharing this message: "You cant help everybody but imagine a world where everybody helped somebody".
