She has coordinated and promoted hundreds of events, including concerts, formal dinners, awards ceremonies, and TEDx events.

Who is your Everyday Hero?
I recently rewatched the movie Harold and Maude, which rekindled my desire to further my passion and curiosity into my age. I'm extremely inspired to find that you have someone in your life like that. I think we have so much to learn from people who embrace life like that.

Who is your Everyday Hero?
My best friend is my hero. We don't agree, many times, even about fundamental beliefs, but we always know that we are on the same team. My friend is sincere, passionate, and willing to go out and do what they think should be done. I am inspired and highly motivated by this person because, even when I feel hopeless, I know that I can look to my best friend and see that there are countless things that are not only worth doing but within reach!

What do organized communities achieve more efficiently than government? What could they achieve?"
I am more of a believer in the efficacy of groups of volunteers (or, at the least, voluntary participants) than in movements pushed by governments relying upon the support of people who may not actually agree with the cause. I think that the social media revolution (cell phones, the internet) has endowed current generations with hitherto unimaginable ability to organize and successfully accomplish common goals. Right now, the easiest thing that communities like these can do (so far as I know) is to share and transmit information. (Note: I make no claims to the accuracy of this information...) I think that information access is key, though. The more up to date one is with information, the better informed one's decisions can be. (Whether this is the market price of goods that a small farmer is bringing in to market or information about individual liberties in attempting to escape an unwanted marriage.) Additionally, as transportation continues to become more accessible, the organization of these groups may even result in more presence in areas of need. (Although, like with the texted donations Americans saw, after the earthquakes in Haiti, physical presence may be the least of our presence in this revolutionary world of communication.) I have great hope for this technology and these voluntary groups, looking on into the future, as well, although I haven't the time to express it!
