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

Geoffrey Canada because I am inspired by his work and perseverance in the field of childhood education and wellness.

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

I would love to eventually own a coffee shop that is a resource to the community in which it operates by supporting the local economy and being a gathering place for community members to host social events and activities like poetry readings and art showings (I know these exist all over the country, so it’s not an original enterprise. I’ve been inspired by other entrepreneurs who have built these businesses and would like to eventually start one myself)
