What is your favourite inspirational quote? 
“Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.” - Theodore Roosevelt
What is a little known fact about you?

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader? 
A lot of my projects didn’t unfold as I had expected them to. There were unforeseen challenges that made the process difficult and sometimes frustrating. As a leader, I think that it’s most important to care about your team and connect with them. The resulting teamwork allows you to learn from each other and overcome difficulties with ease. I think I make a great Shulich Leader because I always try to develop a rapport in each team that I am a part of so that each individual’s expertise can be fully utilized.
