What area(s) of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) are you pursuing for your undergraduate degree?
Physical Sciences
What is your favourite inspirational quote? 
“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” – Carl Sagan
What is a little known fact about you?
I absolutely love to read and write! I was co-editor of my school’s literary newspaper, I successfully completed a challenge to write 1000 words a day for a hundred days, I currently keep a book review blog, and I’ve even had some of my poetry published.
Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader? 
I think I make a great Schulich Leader because I’m incredibly passionate about all sorts of things – sports, science, literature, music, school… no matter the field, I love new experiences and I’m always setting the bar higher. I believe that being challenged is more important than being perfect; it doesn’t matter where you’re going if you don’t care about the road you take to get there.
