Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

I think that I’ll make a great Schulich Leader because of all of the life experience that I have already obtained. I definitely have gone through some challenges in my life, but they have just motivated me to be the best person that I can be. I have worked very hard to have gotten where I am right now, and without a doubt I appreciate the opportunity that this Scholarship has given me more than words can say. I have high hopes for the future, and I plan on giving back as much as I possibly can.
