Q&A with
Rylan
:

What undergraduate program are you enrolled?
 
Computer Science
 
What is your favourite inspirational quote?
 
"Human beings, it seems, are at their best when immersed deeply in something challenging." - Cal Newport
 
What is a little known fact about you?
 
I enjoy fitness and pushing physical limits of performance.
 
Why do you make a great Schulich Leader?
 
I have interest in science and creating technology that can have positive effects on our lives. To develop such technology, one must be innovative, thoughtful, optimistic, and persistent. When people are willing to step up to the intellectual challenge we respect and praise their work. (Elon Musk is a popular example.) I am motivated to become a leader in this way – to demonstrate the aforementioned qualities, set an example, and contribute efforts to technology that benefit humanity.
