What was your role / responsibilities for Tesla?

– by Aaron Grenke • Schulich Leader at University of Waterloo

Q&A with

What area(s) of STEM are you pursuing for your undergraduate degree?
Mechanical Engineering (co-op)
What is your favourite inspirational quote? 
“A person who has never made a mistake has never learnt anything new.” —Einstein
What is a little known fact about you?
I really enjoy anything to do with cameras! Throughout high school I’ve tried action, nature, time-lapse, wildlife, still life, and even some (negligibly successful) underwater!
Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader? 
I believe that the essence of being a Schulich Leader is refusing to suppress your aspirations—especially your academic and innovative ones. I’m not afraid to approach a problem in an unconventional manner, and am passionate about matching the talents I’ve been given with the complex challenges of the future. Whether it’s in academics, projects, or extracurricular activities, I thoroughly enjoy striving for excellence while finding a way to make it relevant to the world around us.
