Q&A with
Alana
:

What area(s) of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) are you pursuing for your undergraduate degree?
 
Biomedical Science
 
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
 
“Pursue a righteous life—a life of wonder, faith, love, steadiness, courtesy.  Run hard and fast in the faith.  Seize the eternal life, the life you were called to.”
—1 Timothy 6:11-12
 
What is a little known fact about you?
 
As much as I love math and science, I also enjoy a variety of arts and athletics.  Playing piano, writing and running are some of my favourite things to do.  To unwind, I like watching ridiculously predictable crime shows!
 
Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?
 
I make a great Schulich Leader because I am determined, passionate, innovative, and I love learning. I am able to motivate and work cooperatively with others to achieve a common goal.  I enjoy the challenge of identifying a need, determining a solution, and working tirelessly to implement it.  Helping others succeed is what I find most fulfilling, and I am grateful and excited, as a Schulich Leader, to be able to make a difference in my community and country!
