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

If time travel were possible, even just 1 year into the past, I would jump at the chance to have a meal with Maya Angelou, because I find her to be an incredible model for womanhood, or humankind in general, and I would love to learn how she was able to maintain peace and strength throughout the hardships she endured in her life.

If you could create your own social enterprise, what would it be and why?

An enterprise in which inner city children, particularly those in public schools which do not support many extra-curricular activities, learn about sustainability and how food grows, where it comes from, and what it means to be stewards of the earth, because when children (and adults, for that matter) understand the functionality of the earth, they find a more meaningful place for themselves in it.
