Author, The Lost Art of Connecting
What's your personal advocacy?
To always do everything in my power to lift up others.
What was the turning point that first got you interested in it?
I cannot point to an exact "turning point," but rather a lifetime of circumstances. My grandparents were refugees and my parents grew up during the Great Depression, given that, at an early age I learned that the world is filled with inequality and suffering. I volunteered for nonprofits as early as my high school years and continued such a focus throughout my professional career.
