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

Ella Baker because I feel like I can learn a lot by just listening to her talk about her life experiences and philosophy on grassroots organizing.

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

A restaurant that allocates its profits to non-profit/non-governmental organizations because I do not know any that have that model and because I’ve always wanted to run a restaurant.
