On philanthropy: Philanthropy means promoting positive change in society. It means a giving of one’s resources—time, talent, voice or money—to a beneficial cause. Everyone should be involved in philanthropy in some capacity. Even the smallest acts make a difference.


Proudest achievement: Marking the fifth anniversary of the nonprofit organization Shuzz. Our mission at Shuzz is to provide the simple need of shoes to children around the world. It continues to grow and evolve, and I’m excited to see how great of an impact we can have.


Best advice received: The most successful people are the ones who learn from their mistakes and turn their failures into opportunities. So when you fail—and you will—pick yourself up and start again.


Stress reliever: Running and enjoying the occasional glass of wine


Next on the to-do list: Launching a fashion line called Bardo


Little-known fact: I love cooking. I’m working on perfecting the best Bolognese sauce.


Bucket-list must: To be a mother


Quote that inspires her: “Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.” —John Maxwell
