If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead, but not related to you) who would it be and where would you go?:My Middle School and Elementary School principal, Mrs. Hilda Velazquez, and the late dean of admissions at Princeton, Fred Hargadon. They both were “gate openers” (as opposed to gatekeepers) not only for me but many other disadvantaged students in whom they saw potential. I would probably take them on a chef catered cruise in a place of their choosing – Mediterranean, Pacific Islands or Caribbean
