I would enjoy having dinner with Judy Chicago. She is not only a feminist artist, but she is also an author and educator. Chicago has inspired a vast amount of people through her artistic works and projects. For instance, Judy led 150 needle workers for the Birth Project. Additionally, she was able to direct hundreds of women for her project called The Dinner Party. Chicago would be an interesting person to have dinner with because she has a unique vision and has great leadership capabilities. I would enjoy discussing how she creates different projects and learning about her passion for modern art. Who is your favorite modern artist? Do you have a favorite artistic movement?

Top CEOs, inventors, millionaires, celebrities, or sports professionals were not going to cut it because I wanted to talk to a person who has experienced the world differently. Cue Malala Yousafzai. The 16 year old is the youngest person ever to win the Noble Peace Prize. Continue reading Lunch with Malala
