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

I would choose FDR as my dinner guest because he guided the US through one of the most difficult periods in history and, as a student of history, I’m intrigued by that period.

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

I would start an exchange program for rural Chinese students with strong interests in English to come to the U.S. for a summer (or several summers) of language and cultural exploration.
