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

I would love to have dinner with Huey Newton because he was able to begin a social movement just as a young Black man.

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

I would like to create a social enterprise that collects plastic from the Pacific Ocean, and recycles the plastic so that it can be used by other companies.
