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

I can’t decide between Bill Nye the Science Guy and Ellen Degeneres – both of them are my heroes!

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

I’d connect hungry people with restaurants and grocery stores that were throwing away perfectly good food – it could help people in need and cut down on food waste.
