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

Atticus Finch from the book To Kill a Mockingbird. This was the first book I remember reading that engendered feelings of anger and sadness over an issue of social injustice and I found Atticus Finch’s willingness to stand up for his values incredibly inspiring at a young age.

If you could create your own social enterprise, what would it be and why?

I actually wrote my senior thesis on the potential for social enterprise to produce a more self-reliant agricultural sector in the West Bank so I would probably create a social enterprise that helped Palestinian farmers use their limited land and resources more sustainably and that helped connect them to Palestinian consumers.
