What is your favourite inspirational quote?


“If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” –Milton Berle



Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader? 


I believe I make a great Schulich Leader, because I not only have a passion for learning science and math, but I also want to help other people have the opportunity to gain knowledge in these fields of study. Having experienced and seen the effect of factors such as gender, money, and social class on people’s access to education especially in the STEM fields has made me want to increase the STEM related opportunities available to all people.
