What is your favourite inspirational quote?


“When life gets you down, do you know what you’ve gotta do? Just keep swimming!” – Dory


What is a little known fact about you?


Up until the age of 5, I was so painfully shy that I was basically mute. I’ve since done a complete 180 turn – it’s apparent that I am an extrovert! 


Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?


I am someone who lives a balanced life by allocating time for school, friends, sleep, and extracurriculars. I facilitate projects and ensure that others have a voice by establishing a comfortable group dynamic. My leadership experiences in my school and community serve as a stepping stone for my future scientific ventures.
