Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader? 


I think I make a great Schulich leader because I love to build relationships with others.  I am passionate about supporting and helping people and I always try to reach out to those in need.  I also strive to be a positive example for others, whether it be at school, at work, on sports teams, at home or in social settings.
