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

I would have dinner with Prime Minister Netanyahu so that I could gain insight on his perspective of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. This conflict is and has been more complex than meets the eye and talking with the prime minister would would hopefully answer some questions I have about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

What motivates you to create social impact?

Seeing all of my fellow cohorts (who are my peers) that are so dedicated to creating social impact has convinced me that I also can create social impact that will change people’s lives (hopefully veteran’s lives during this summer).
