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

I would have dinner with Martin Luther King Jr. to thank him for his work and sacrifice and get his advice on leading a progressive movement.

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

I would create a social enterprise that focused on facilitating and supporting corporate social responsibility and sustainability because I believe that corporations hold a lot of social power and if they were to shift their practices to be more responsible and sustainable for our planet, including its people and resources, then public policy and citizen investment would follow suit. i
