Savannah Holness

Study Hub Founder

Savannah takes the meaning of the word organised to a whole new level. Compliment her on this, and be prepared to listen to a 10 minute speech on how this is all a facade, and really her life is absolute chaos! But hey, behind every culinary masterpiece is a kitchen that looks like a war zone!

Savannah’s mum would say that she never just does a task, she always has to extend it. Her mum has seen her through several charity events, as an example of her habit, one event begun as bake sale in the school playground and ended as major newspaper worthy three-course charity dinner! Bringing us to Study Hub. 

Those of you that have been here right from the very beginning, will know this was meant to be a be a temporary fix to help students through exams during lockdown. Well, here we are now.

Samuel Welch & Simi Sodeinde​

Sponsorship​

Sam Welch

Hello! I’m Sam, I’m in my penultimate year of medical education. I’ve decided to try medicine after trying too many other things; before joining the GEP program at St. George’s University of London my previous degree was in English Lit (What can you do with a BA in English?). Savannah’s Study Hub got me out of T-year, and I’m very pleased to be helping her now bring it to as many medical students as possible, ideally forever. If you’d like a drawn-out afternoon, ask me about Literary Theory!

Simi Sodeinde

Simi developed her passion for medical education, event planning and administration over the past three years through her work in various university and charity-based roles. She enjoys partnering with external organisations on engaging and mutually beneficial projects and is highly experienced in sponsorship liaising, finance and procedures.

Currently a final year medical student, after having obtained an intercalated BSc, Simi helps maintain sponsor relationships between external bodies and Study Hub, ensuring the adequate exposure and representation of the latter.

Muhammad Akram

Development

A consultant business manager in General Practice and managing director of Executechnical Ltd. Worked on various digitalisation and improvement projects across North West, Central London and Hammersmith & Fulham CCGs.

Holds a Batchelors degree in Medical Engineering and currently studying medicine as a postgraduate. Currently working alongside the Study Hub family and offering general advice and support to the Web Development team.

Jonathan Khadine​

Media Lead​

Viewing sleep more as an inconvenience than a necessity, Jonathan has been involved in various and seemingly unconnected fields since leaving school. He spent the first two years at George’s involved in many societies, trying his hand at rowing, choir and the Games Society. Finding a deep passion for programming and computer graphics, he spent most of his third year rapidly spiralling into a pit of JavaScript and energy drinks that led him inevitably to serve the Students’ Union working on its website. 

Academically, Jonathan has long-standing commitments to the Neuroscience Society and the dissection room, in which a piece of him will always remain. Since being trapped indoors by the Challenging Times We Currently Face, far away from dirt trails and dubstep raves, Jonathan has spent his time working on various programming related projects. 

Largely a video editing and production role, Media Lead serves the project as a generator and moderator of content. Though the majority of content is generated by the contributors giving lectures and so on, it is the Media Lead’s job to ensure uniformity, and to generate other media for publicity and flavour!
