What is a little known fact about you?


I have danced since I was three years old! I love all styles of dance, but especially tap, jazz, ballet, hip hop, pointe and lyrical! When I hear the beat, I can’t stop my feet! 


Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?


My enthusiasm and commitment to projects enables me to motivate other people to get involved. As a leader, I strive to inspire others to reach their full potential while offering my best effort. When faced with a new challenge I think of new ways to approach and solve the problems that are presented to me. I believe that there are many opportunities to be a leader even on a small scale in our everyday lives.
