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

Elon Musk, because of his ability to transform lofty goals and ambition into innovation and invention.

What motivates you to create social impact?

Privileged with a fortunate upbringing and academic opportunities, I’m driven to motivate members of lower-opportunity/lower-income communities to cultivate their interests and empower themselves.

Host Site Overview

The Illinois Center for Adoption & Permanency (iCAP) mission is to secure and support loving families for children in need of permanent homes. We are motivated by the belief that every child deserves a loving family.

Host Site Project

We continue to strive to collect data and use data to inform practice in the area of permanency for IL children. To accomplish this task, we need robust software and data analytic processes so key data may be shared with stakeholders. We have identified the software, and the New Sector fellow assigned to iCAP would support the development of tracking and data processes to ensure that this project moves forward in a timely manner.
