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

If I could have dinner with 1 person that would be former Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon. I would love to pick his brain on how people could become more engaged in international relations as well as his experience with the UN.

What motivates you to create social impact?

My motivation stems from a world free of extremist ideas, xenophobia, and the isms that continue to degrade and distort the identities of people across all nations.
