Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?

A leader is someone that is able to be your friend and motivator at the same time. You have to be able to work alongside your followers, and connect with them on different levels.  I am a great Schulich Leader because of my academic excellence and commitment to education as well as the leadership I provide in academics and within my local community. My experience in student governance, volunteer work, and persistence in all things academic qualifies me to be a Schulich Leader. As a leader, I acknowledge my mistakes and shortcomings and allow them to drive me forward, not hold me back.
