What inspires me: People who give deeply of themselves without seeking recognition
I do what I do because: There’s nothing more fulfilling than seeing something change for the better and knowing you played a part in it
I think the world would be better if: We all had the desire and opportunity to truly listen to and understand people who think differently from us
