Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader

I have always stood up for what I believe is right; may the issue be human rights or scientific progress. No matter how many people told me I could not do something I would always at least try. To me that is what a leader is; someone who stands up for what is right regardless of how hard it may be. If not for themselves than for all those who are unable to stand up.
