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

Thomas Jefferson, hands down. Not only is he the founder of the best university, the University of Virginia, but he is a man who was quite ahead of his time as a human rights advocate in the early 1800s.

What motivates you to create social impact?

Simply stated, I want the world to be a better place for future generations; I’m motivated by desire for justice and a sense of optimism that the world will one day be less plagued by inequities.
