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

I would love to have dinner with Lin-Manuel Miranda because he is a leader by action, commitment, and compassion: he uses his knowledge and his talent to ignite change, to improve the world around him, and to challenge the norm.

What motivates you to create social impact?

We are brothers and sisters, and as such, we need to treat each other with compassion and love. I believe the relationships we establish in life are more valuable than any other measure, and we should work to help each other along the way.
