What area(s) of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) are you pursuing for your undergraduate degree?




What is your favourite inspirational quote? 


“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” –Maya Angelou (Civil Rights Activist)


What is a little known fact about you?


I had never volunteered or done any community service until I had the opportunity to tutor an autistic child at my local library in grade nine. My experience was life-changing and motivated me to engage on a journey of contributing to my society in any way possible.


Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?


I not only seized opportunities I was presented with, but I created them as well; both for myself and others. These became the pathway that led to personal success in academics as well as the medium to positively impact the lives of others. What makes me a great Schulich Leader is not necessarily my actions, but the attitude I bring of serving my community, both directly and by acting as a role model for others to realise the impact that social work can do to an individual and those around him.
