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

Bachelor of Science in Engineering

What is your favourite inspirational quote?

“We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.” - Marianne Williamson

What is a little known fact about you?

I love to travel, and want to explore the world! I have lived all around Canada - I was born in Nanaimo BC, moved to Sudbury ON, Whitehorse YK, Yellowknife NWT, back to Sudbury ON, and then ended up in North Bay ON. I am now in Kingston ON for my studies.

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

I am well rounded, determined and involved in my school community. I am not the most outspoken, but I lead by example and push others to be their best. ​
