Jamie Dublanko

Schulich Leader

University of Alberta

High School: Queen Elizabeth School

Nominated by Dawn Cross

Edmonton, AB

What area(s) of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) are
you pursuing for your undergraduate degree?
Molecular Genetics
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
“The best use of a life is to spend it for something that outlasts it” -William James
What is a little known fact about you?
I take manners very seriously! Living in Edmonton, i.e. the ‘festival city,’ the word
‘sorry’ becomes essential for navigating jam packed parks or your favourite coffee
spot. Wherever, whenever, its never a wrong occasion to be nice!
Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?
In my eyes, an innovator is someone who is able to not only imagine solutions to
create change, but can first envision where that change can happen. It is through
being passionate, curious, and dedicated to a cause that the opportunity for
improvement presents itself, and with it an infinity of ways to apply your skills. I
think I make a great Schulich Leader because I have a cause. My passion for
politics and environmentalism drive my commitment to leadership and science,
and in time I hope I can make strides to advance these fields as other leaders have
before me.
