Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
 
For centuries, leaders have been commonly defined by their ability to lead others. I can lead, but I would rather serve. Caring for the needs and opinions of others while encouraging their accomplishments is what I am gifted at. To be a defiant leader, one must first learn to serve. I know what it means to serve and to be served. Being a servant leader is what makes me a great Schulich Leader.
