Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?


I am a Schulich Leader because of my passion to find innovative solutions to help people.  Whether it is developing an App that brings the internet to rural communities in developing countries or teaching swimming lessons at the local pool and lake, my mindset has always been, “How can I help someone else?”.  After two Mission Trips to Ecuador, my heart has been drawn towards people in developing countries.  I hope to one day be able to use my engineering knowledge to build a better future for all people.
