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 Sheryl Sandberg because she is making a huge difference in the realm of women in the workplace and leadership, and despite the immense tragedy and loss she has faced, she continues to press forward and impact the world.

What motivates you to create social impact?

I believe that it is by chance that we are born into our specific life circumstances that enable us to either thrive or fight to survive–social impact is a tool to correct that imbalance and injustice.
