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

I would dine with Lorne Michaels, the creative frontman behind Saturday Night Live for the past 40+ years. I’d love to pick his brain about his role as showrunner and SNL’s influence on politics.

What motivates you to create social impact?

I learn the most from engaging in dialogue with members of diverse communities, and it is these conversations that drive me to create social impact.
