Q&A with
Amanda
:

What area(s) of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) are you pursuing for your undergraduate degree?

Engineering

What is your favourite inspirational quote? 

"You pile up enough tomorrows, and you'll find you are left with nothing but a lot of empty yesterdays. I don't know about you, but I'd like to make today worth remembering.” -Meredith Willson (The Music Man)

What is a little known fact about you?

I have dual citizenship (Italian-Canadian)

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader

I think that the most important characteristic that a great leader can possess is ambition. As much as good genes, a great education, and exposure to different cultures helps children grow into successful adults, every person is ultimately responsible for their own success. Without ambition and inner drive, no matter how many opportunities they are presented, no one will be successful without ambition. It is my ambition that makes me a great Schulich Leader.
