If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?
Martin Luther King Jr. because his intense focus, deep understanding, and radical approach to advocating for the oppressed has inspired me to follow in his footsteps.
What motivates you to create social impact?
I am motivated by the knowledge that social inequities are still widely pervasive in American society, and by the belief that significant social change is possible.
