"I found out when I was checking my email at school right before a biology test. Safe to say I couldn't focus too well on the test. I'd like to thank my teachers and guidance counselors who helped me with the application, provided references and supported me throughout high school. I also want to thank my sister who always kept me motivated to apply for scholarships and strive for greatness."

Other Faculty of Science students: Amanda Sullivan, Arnica Khaton, Kaylee Rich, Kyle Sung and Ziqi Shang are are this year's recipients of Schulich Leader Scholarships. Five students from the Faculty of Engineering also received scholarships.
