:

What area(s) of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) are you pursuing for your undergraduate degree?

Science

What is your favourite inspirational quote?

"If you haven't found something strange during the day, it hasn't been much of a day" - John Archibald Wheeler

What is a little known fact about you?

This was recently pointed out to me: on the day that I was born in 1995, American Airlines Flight 965, a Boeing 757, crashed into a mountain in Buga, Colombia, killing 159.

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

I try to objectively evaluate my work. For example, I always analyze failure but never justify failure.
