Q&A with
Viktor
:

What undergraduate program are you enrolled?
 
I am enrolled in engineering and plan to pursue specialization in biosystems.
 
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
 
"When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on." - Franklin D. Roosevelt
 
What is a little known fact about you?
 
I have grown up on a cattle ranch my whole life, which is why I love the outdoors.
 
Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
 
I believe that I will be a great Schulich Leader because I am genuinely curious.  Since a young age I have been known for asking many questions, always in an effort to learn.  I have also been very fortunate in my upbringing, having the support of my family and community. This has allowed me to become involved in various activities, giving me a breadth of experience.  Finally, I think that my humble character drives my desire to serve other people.  I hope to use all of these traits to help, and support society through the practice of innovative engineering.
