Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader? 


I think I make a great Schulich Leader not because of supreme intelligence or incredible insight, but because I know what I’m passionate about, which allows to me to work extremely hard towards my goals while still loving what I do and I’m always trying to contest our conventional ways of thinking, but mainly because I care and I’m not afraid to make mistakes.
