“There are a million ways to save the world — you just have to figure out what yours is. For some people, it’s running a nonprofit or having a social enterprise. As for me, I watch way too much TV. Much of what I know about the world and people unlike me comes through the media. That’s why I’m interested in the industry: we need more diversity in media in decision-making roles, because what people see ultimately influences the culture we create. Content affects what people believe, how they perceive others, and their worldview. If you can influence that, then you can influence a whole lot of other things. For me, that’s social impact.”
