What area(s) of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) are you pursuing for your undergraduate degree?

What is your favourite inspirational quote? 


“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson 


What is a little known fact about you?


My FHL team, the Pylons, won the intermural championship, and I love to watch physics documentaries.


Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader? 


 I think that I make a great Schulich Leader because I have a fire inside of me pushing me to reach my potential, the flames of which spread to those around. To ponder life, to contemplate the formation of fundamental equations, to create a new scientific model that unifies all physical aspects of the universe. To help others, and inspire them to live an enriched life through the creation of new theories and design of new technologies. Born out of my intense desire to understand the world around us, these are dreams I hope to make reality.
