What undergraduate program are you enrolled?
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
“Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It’s about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it. . . . It is about laying down the groundwork for other’s success, and then standing back and letting them shine.” – Chris Hadfield
What is a little known fact about you?
I coached a local Special Olympics bowling team for a season, during which I found myself in a student-teaches-teacher scenario: the athletes that I coached taught me more more than it seemed I had taught them!
Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
My intrinsic desires and values align with the overarching goals of Mr. Schulich and the Schulich Leader’s Foundation. I am driven to combine my passions for science and technology with my goal of solving global challenges using leading-edge research and innovation.
