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 Rachel Carson, because I admire her dedication to an important cause and her willingness to fight for what she believed in.

What motivates you to create social impact?

I am motivated to create social impact because it means a lot to me when work that I do results in positive changes for others.
