If you could meet any living person for a chat over a shared dinner, who would you pick and why?

I would love to chat over a meal with Michelle Obama to talk about her life experiences and the current state of affairs in the United States and the world from her perspective as the first African American First Lady, and as a mother. I would love to hear her thoughts of how we navigate this racially charged and even sometimes hostile environment. Perhaps through her work with the Obama Foundation she has insight that will give me hope.

If you were doing something else besides this, what would it be?

I would go back to working in healthcare, in a hospital setting as a nurse. It is a gratifying job giving direct care to patients and working with the various departments to implement the patients’ care plans to make a difference in their health outcomes and their hospital experiences.
