Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
I believe I make a great Schulich Leader because I am curious about the world around me and I have a strong will to pass on what I’ve learned to others. Furthermore, I have the drive to achieve my aspirations to be a leader in the engineering field and to actually build a better world.
