Quotes

“Although social entrepreneurship has become a very popular rallying point...solutions to these kind of complex problems never come easy, right?” (16:19)

“I’m an optimist in the human spirit and resilience to come up with solutions down the road that address these issues.  But it is imperative that we all are aware of the magnitude of the problem, but we also are aware of how we can connect.” (43:16)
