Q&A with

What undergraduate program are you enrolled?
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
"I'm still here."
What is a little known fact about you?
I want to become a published writer one day.
Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
I'm still here, simply put. Life has been irrevocably painful, but I haven't given up, and I will never, ever quit at anything. I think the world is so incredible and beautiful, and I cannot wait to make a name for myself in it. This passion - this fervour - that I have within me is why I think I will make a great Schulich Leader.
