When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A children’s adventure series author. I was a huge fan of British children’s author Enid Blyton and her Famous Five series.
A social cause you care deeply about and why?
Health equity. Health is the greatest wealth we all have, and deep disparities in access to care is heart breaking.
If you could earn a living doing anything else, what would it be?
Advice columnist. Time would fly, listening to other people’s concerns and dishing up sage wisdom.
You can invite 3 people from either present day or history to break bread with, who would it be and why?
Mother Teresa – to absorb the vision and gumption it took to do what she did.
Michelle Obama – to pick her brains on parenting skills.
My mother Kamala – so many conversations we never got to have before we said adieu.
In 5 words, describe yourself? (must use all 5….no more…no less)
Nature. Hiking. Rowing. Generous. Blessed.
