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

I would have a burrito with my college chaplain, because he would make me laugh and remind me to keep joy and compassion at the center of my service.

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

A social enterprise focused on improving access to high-quality writing instruction in high schools, because I believe that writing skills foster critical thinking and are essential for civic participation, and I’m grateful for the educators that helped me develop my own.
