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

Jamie Oliver, he’s a TV food personality. He isn’t afraid to do really gutsy things to make a point, and courage, to me, is the most important quality in a leader.

What motivates you to create social impact?

I think making a unique, positive contribution to the world is a desire we all share, because it allows us to experience the fulfillment of becoming the best versions of ourselves.
