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


What is your favourite inspirational quote?

My answer to this would have to be a tie between two quotes, taken from vastly different sources:

 "Youth is the time for any extraordinary toil" - Book VII, The Republic
"Why persevere when you can be passionate?" - Graffiti on a bathroom stall at SFU

What is a little known fact about you?

When I immigrated to Canada at age 4, my mother asked me what I wanted my English name to be. With the utmost enthusiasm, I replied: "Buzz Lightyear!" 

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

My scientific pursuits outside of school, commitment to improving the lives of others, and passion for knowledge define me and motivate me towards success.
