Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?


I consider myself to be a well-rounded person and endeavor to attend to all my domains of life including educational, spiritual, emotional, social, and physical. Life experiences have taught me to be adaptable. When faced with adversity I always strive to make the best of the situation at hand, and move forward in a way that allows for growth and betterment. This is a skill that I directly and indirectly apply to my daily life as well as my future goals. Over the years I have learned a lot about myself and my determination to achieve academic success, passion for servant leadership, and curiosity for the sciences. I have learned how to cope and manage group dynamics, work under pressure and across differences, deal with conflict, as well as work as a team and as an individual. I have learned to be a whole person whom I believe to make a great Schulich Leader.
