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

Nicki Minaj has used her fame as a platform to bring attention to discussions about racism, sexism, and poverty, while urging her fans at every show to finish school and signing their diplomas; I would love to have dinner with the woman who has made a name for herself in a rough industry and is using that name to help others.

What motivates you to create social impact?

The economic collapse brought out both the best and the worst in people, even now; it’s been seeing the worst in us that pushes me to do whatever I can to help brighten our collective futures.

Host Site Project

The Impact Hub is new to the Twin Cities this year. As a social enterprise community center, we offer a unique ecosystem of resources, inspiration, and collaboration opportunities to grow impact. As an organization, we’re interested in growing the resources we offer to organizations in order for them to deepen their impact. The RISE Fellow will work with coalition partners to focus on the community awareness and engagement amongst the organizations the Impact Hub serves. The goal is to increase awareness of the resources organizations have to build their infrastructure in order to increase their impact. The Fellow will focus on improving story-telling through various channels, including website, email, and social media. The Fellow will then train and support staff members to effectively communicate our work.
