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

I would like to have dinner with Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation because she is a very driven leader who works creatively and with relentless ambition towards her goals.

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

I would open a pizza parlor operated by high school students to provide then a practical space to learn and apply lessons in economics, business, and entrepreneurship.
