What is your favourite inspirational quote?
 
"Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend." -Albert Camus

Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
 
A Schulich Leader is an individual who is highly motivated and prioritizes the opportunity for learning in all their experiences. To this end, the many teacher's who've inspired me and led me to where I am today granted me the opportunities I needed to inherit the title of Schulich Leader. I believe that by immersing myself in culture, language, outdoors, good company and academia, I will slowly deserve that title. Ultimately, I make a great Schulich Leader because I am driven to excel and I am highly motivated to learn from every experience and interaction that comes my way.
