What is your favourite inspirational quote?

What is a little known fact about you?

Why do you think you make a great Schulich Leader? 
The desire I have to make my community a brighter place is what motivates me to be an everyday role-model. Realizing the need for empathetic yet innovative change makers, I believe my ability to amalgamate my love for learning with practical applications is valuable. A leader is someone who can understand different viewpoints, build consensus, and coalesce ideas into a path forward. My academic excellence, volunteerism, and diverse array of life experiences leave me well equipped to be a Schulich Leader.
