What is your favourite inspirational quote?

“Don't make stuff because you want to make money; it will never make you enough money. And don't make stuff because you want to be famous, because you will never feel famous enough. Make gifts for people. And work hard on making those gifts in the hope that those people will notice, and like the gifts...Your responsibility is not to the people you are making the gift for, but to the gift itself.” ― John Green

What is a little known fact about yourself?

Nearly all of my entertainment comes from the internet, particularly Youtube, and because of this, I don’t watch any television.

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

I think that my determination to grow, learn from my mistakes, and overcome obstacles makes me a great Schulich Leader.
