Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader

I have always stood up for what I believe is right; may the issue be human rights or scientific progress. No matter how many people told me I could not do something I would always at least try. To me that is what a leader is; someone who stands up for what is right regardless of how difficult that may be. If not for their own sake, then for the sake of all those who are unable to stand up for themselves
