What is your favourite inspirational quote?

"One man can’t change the world, but one man can be the inspiration for the world to change.”   -Kaya

What is a little known fact about yourself?

I love to be mischievous. When I was 12, a buddy and I developed a secret language (both spoken and written) in order to prevent prying eyes from peeping at undisclosed information. To this day, I am still fluent  :)

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

When I believe in something, I stop at nothing to make it into a reality. In my eyes, community is not defined merely by the place in which one lives; it is a diverse fabric woven from the many colourful threads of the human race. Driven by a passion for social justice and an insatiable curiosity, I am dedicated to serving our community and making a meaningful impact on the lives of others.
