Why do you make a great Schulich Leader
 
Having been an advocate for the environment since a young age, I've learned that being able to imagine the possibilities for a positive future and helping to educate others is a significant part of being a good leader. My motivations have stemmed from a desire to make a difference and my hope is that as a Schulich leader I will be able set an example for others by taking risks, taking action, and welcoming challenges that present themselves along the way. By sharing knowledge and inspiring others, leadership can be strengthened and solutions can be discovered through collaboration and innovation.
