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

If I could have dinner with anyone individual it would be Scott Harrison, the founder of Charity:Water, because I admire his innovation and how he would go on to use such to create something that mattered.

What motivates you to create social impact?

I believe, as a living educated individual, it is my obligation to provide my service to that by which will create a more sustainable planet.
