Q&A with
Haleema
:

What undergraduate program are you enrolled?
 
Life Sciences
 
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
 
"Be the change you wish to see in the world"- Mahatma Gandhi
 
What is a little known fact about you?
 
The airport is my second home! I travel to an exotic place every year or so- my family strongly encourages me to explore different cultures. I have visited five provinces in Canada, as well as six different countries around the world. I plan to continue travelling the world and hope to visit Turkey, Australia, and a city in Africa in the future.
 
Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
 
In my eyes, the essence of being a great Schulich Leader is persistently seeking your vision for the betterment of the world, through your passion for science and leadership. I have always been encouraged to make use of the time I have on this Earth, and to serve a life of purpose and meaning. Two of my greatest passions have allowed me to work towards that goal- my enthusiasm for science and my urge to be a leader. I hope to be a part of the revolutionary, innovative change that STEM enthusiasts are making, in my pursuit of a better world around me.
