Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
Technology has always been a passion of mine. From a young age, I was enamored with the wonders of technology, and that interest grew exponentially as I got older. Technology has become my biggest motivation to build, explore, and inspire the world, and I achieve that through collaborating with others, building new things, and working in the community. It is with this passion and my skill set that I believe I am a great Schulich leader that can make a difference in our world.
