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

Barack Obama, because he’s a proven leader who I could learn from and have a productive discussion of how to realistically make the biggest social impact in today’s world.

What motivates you to create social impact?

Desire and ethical duty to help create a world with less pain/suffering/poverty and more happiness.

Host Site Project

The Senior Summer Fellow will advance the employment of Veterans to deliver peer support services to other Veterans challenged by mental health/substance use conditions. The Fellow will conduct a comprehensive review of existing Veteran peer support vehicles in the U.S. and create a database of those vehicles, how Veterans are trained and deployed to provide such support, and the scope of their services. Among other applications, these findings will be used to determine the need for/feasibility of a Veteran peer support leadership and employment center in affiliation with the DBSA Peer Leadership Center (www.peerleadershipcenter.org).
