What drives you to work on addressing social isolation & loneliness / fostering social connection ?

Through my work with CESIL, I have learned that social connection and meaningful relationships are at the heart of how we as humans live our lives. Connection is part of the fabric of our society, and our unique opportunity to have a positive impact motivates me each and every day.
