Celebrating the Shad alum named 2023 Schulich Leaders – Scott Hao
Q: How does it feel to be named a Schulich Leader?
I feel incredibly honored! I couldn’t believe it at first, and once the news set in, I was so grateful to have the support of the scholarship and the Schulich Network. Most of all, I’m thankful for all of the guidance I’ve received to get to this point.
Q: What motivates your passion for STEAM/Entrepreneurship?
I’m motivated by the idea that STEAM is the most direct way of impacting the world around me. New technologies have the potential to solve some really tough problems, so I couldn’t be more glad that I work in these areas.
Q: How do you plan to use STEAM for good?
Although it’s too early in my career to say for certain, I hope to work on technology that integrates with our physical infrastructure – things like self-driving, smart power grids, or autonomous farming.
Q: What lessons would you share with incoming Shads?
I would say my biggest piece of advice is to find your passion! Find an area that you enjoy and dig deep into that thing. For me, it was computer science and software, but it will look different for everyone.
