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

My great grandmother, who was a handwriting interpreter, theater photographer, and single mother, because I never had the chance to meet her, though I grew up hearing stories about her.

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

Motivated by my experiences working in Iowa State Prisons as a GED tutor and writing teacher, I would create an organization that holistically approaches issues of prison reform, prison education, and the reintegration and empowerment of the formerly incarcerated.
