"I am a final year Petroleum Engineering Technology student at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). I have been serving as a Secretary-General of the SPE SAIT Chapter and as a board member of SAIT’s Indigenous Student Petroleum Society for the academic year 2022-23.  

I feel very honored and delighted at being chosen as the winner of B. Hanson Leadership Award for the year 2023 and would like to thank the SPE Canadian Education Fund and Mr. Barry Hanson for endowing me with such an honor.  In the words of Charles Schwab who said that the way to develop the best that is in a person is by appreciation and encouragement, in the same way receiving this award serves as the most profound source of encouragement and motivation for me to put forth the greatest amount of effort towards constantly keeping on improving my academic performance, contribute further towards extra-curricular activities with an increased sense of devotion  and always strive for excellence and great learning during my whole career ahead."
