If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?
At the moment, I’d have to say Lin-Manuel Miranda – what he’s doing to music, theater, entertainment, and even politics is unprecedented and he also just seems like an amazing person.
What motivates you to create social impact?
At the end of the day, I think it would be a lot harder for me to sleep at night if I wasn’t confident I was at least trying to make this world a little bit better.

Tipping Point Community screens non-profits rigorously to find, fund and partner with the most effective organizations helping Bay Area individuals and families break the cycle of poverty and achieve economic self-sufficiency.
Host Site Project
Since 2005, Tipping Point Community has raised more than $100 million to educate, employ, house and support nearly 500,000 people in need. Tipping Point Community screens non-profits rigorously to find, fund and partner with the most promising groups helping low-income people achieve self-sufficiency. Beyond dollars, we provide our grantees with the communications, technical and management assistance they need to grow and increase their impact in the fight against poverty. 100% of every dollar donated goes out the door because our board underwrites all operating and fundraising expenses. Tipping Point?s core values are at the heart of everything we do and we look for individuals who share our commitments: — We are one community. We believe that the responsibility for fighting poverty belongs to all of us. — We serve. Our approach is humble and respectful. We exist to meet the needs of others. — We celebrate generosity. Every gift counts, whether big or small. — We get results. We are relentless in the pursuit of our goals. We hold ourselves and each other accountable. — We are always learning. We are risk takers. We commit to facing our challenges as we support solutions that last. The Communications Fellow will work with Tipping Point?s communications team to expand and extend or strategic communications efforts including social media, developing systems for media monitoring and archiving of content.
