Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

Seymour Schulich created this incredible scholarship to put Canadian leaders at the forefront of global research and innovation. I share this vision with Mr. Schulich, and as a recipient of the Schulich Leader Scholarship, I intend to facilitate this goal. At the University of Toronto, I will utilize my resourcefulness and my determination to pursue the path of a university professor. From this influential position, I hope to inspire students – just as I have been inspired – to tackle scientific problems with passion and ambition.  My future connections with students across the country are the principal reason why I believe that I will make a great Schulich Leader.
