What is your favourite inspirational quote?

-Mahatma Gandhi


What is a little known fact about you?


I greatly appreciate youth involvement, and leadership! In my grade 11 and 12 years, I led six clubs within my school district, while pursuing a semi-professional dance career. I am also a firm believer that youth hold the key to positive change in the world! This belief became most prominent for me after connecting with like-minded youth from around the world at the United Nations Student Conference on Human Rights. Ultimately, from my high school experience, I have developed an ever-growing passion for environmentalism, international relations, and journalism, alongside my interest in the sciences. 


Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader?


I find immense satisfaction in working with communities to implement solutions, projects, and innovations that would better serve society. Eventually, I hope to inspire macro change based on the fundamentals of finding a need within the community, and addressing that need through collaborative efforts.
