If you could invite 1 person to a dinner party – who would it be and why?
Princess Diana. She was a strong women who lead with heart and followed her instinct despite strong opposition. She was true to herself. She always found a way to be kind

There’s still a lot to do, and time is running out. Seeing injustices, poverty, and suffering motivates me to keep going. I always fight for the underdog.
It makes me very happy to throw a dinner party, as I love seeing people enjoy themselves and what I cooked for them,
What advice would you give your 10-year-old self?
Trust your gut, and speak up. Be outspoken.
In contrast to how I was taught as a child to be quiet, to not step on toes.
If you could make 1 global change – what would it be?
ALL LEADERS, OUT! Start of with a clean slate of heads of state. Empathy is a requirement to be a head of state.
What are your Top 3 achievements?
1) Getting through boarding school as a vegetarian in Africa.
2) Making a career out of something that I was told was only a hobby.
3) I BECAME the CEO that my mother always wanted me to marry!
What does sustainability mean for you?
Taking stock of what’s present; Having a roadmap for the future; Making sure to leave a legacy that was better than what was handed to me
What was the most important event/influence that changed your perspective?
When I was 12, I had a visceral experience as I saw one of my favorite nuns watching a priest giving a mass. I was able to clearly recognize her conflicted emotions by the feelings unconsciously expressed on her face – those of both love and the pain - unrequited love. At that moment, I realized that I could not be a nun.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us?
Together, we’re going to change the world…one challenge at a time. We will leave a better legacy than what was handed to us.
