If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

I would have dinner with Philippe Bourgois, because in reading his ethnography, “Righteous Dopefiend,” which sheds light on the experiences of addicts and homeless in San Francisco, I felt motivated to take an active role in poverty alleviation and policy change.

What motivates you to create social impact?

I am inspired by the incredible people in my life – friends, family, strangers – who, through listening and caring, have made their communities stronger and more loving.
