What is your favourite inspirational quote?

“Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t.” - Mary Schmich

What is a little known fact about you?

I used to anonymously post art pieces around my high school.  A couple were obvious, like silhouettes of sea monsters plastered on the glass windows on doors, but most of the time you would catch them out of the corner of your eye, like a tiny army man carrying a little guitar set up on a door frame.

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

I make sure that there is purpose in all I do, recognizing that learning and helping others are some of the most purposeful of pursuits.
