Engineering

What is your favourite inspirational quote?

“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for a bird to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present...We must be hatched or go bad" - C.S. Lewis

What is a little known fact about you?

I hold my high school's record in the steeplechase.

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

I have a strong curiosity about the world and a passion for learning. I strive to look at the world objectively and see the big picture. This combined with the responsibility I feel to do good gives me the belief that I can change the world.
