Q&A with
Daniel
:

What area(s) of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) are you pursuing for your undergraduate degree?
 
Mechanical Engineering
 
What is your favourite inspirational quote? 
 
"I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." -Michael Jordan
 
What is a little known fact about you?
 
Although you probably wouldn't be able to tell from first glance, or even a second glance, I come from a half Lebanese and a half Scottish background.
 
Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?
 
I believe I'm alike many other Schulich Leaders, in the sense that I am someone who constantly looks for that different approach, always questions the status quo and never holds back from pursuing a dream. I have always wanted to get out there and build a product that could actually help those who need it most. With a lot of late nights, support from some pretty incredible people and definitely a little bit of luck, I'm happy to say that I have been able to do just that - working with helmet and prosthetic limb design. I absolutely love what I do!
