Using the wise words of Mark Twain, when a man loves cats, I am his friend and comrade without further introduction.
 
Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
 
Having seen and experienced the effects of factors such as gender, money, and social class on people’s access to education, I have a passion to oppose injustice. My peak comes into place when I am encouraging others to reach their dreams alongside mine. As a Schulich Leader, I now have a greater potential to empower people, and thus myself.
