If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?
First, I should note that I define a “leader” as anyone who incites people to change their understanding of self or society in relation to a specific issue or topic of debate. I would love to have dinner with film-maker Kirby Ryan Dick, who just produced “The Hunting Ground” (an exposé about sexual assault on college campuses) because I’d love to learn how he approaches story-telling in order to start national dialogue.
Describe in 1 sentence, what motivates you to create social impact?
While living in Nepal, I realized that our society needs to re-think how we understand development, rights, and social progress; after seeing the damage that can be caused by mis-guided aid, I decided to learn what positive, effective social change should look like.
