Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?


Learning and exploration are two things I am very passionate about. I have had many leadership and research experiences in areas of STEM. With these experiences, I am ready to share my interests and lead our generation and the next to become innovators. My curiosity about the wonders of our world that have not yet been discovered makes me strive to explore them. Our world has had immense progress in the STEM fields. I have a positive outlook on what our generation can contribute to the changing society, and I hope to lead and be part of these contributions. With my passion for community involvement, ambition, and never-ending love for learning and exploration, these are the reasons why I believe I would make a great Schulich Leader.
