Idols

Emma Watson
What she does for women's empowerment is truly amazing. She started a campaign called "He for She." Watch her speech to the United Nations here.

Judd Apatow
Very funny guy. I saw one of his standup shows at the Comedy Cellar while living in NYC. He said “I can justify eating anything by convincing myself its healthy.. name something!" -"Pizza"- “well… the crust is your grain, the tomato sauce is your vegetable, and the cheese is your dairy!"

James Altucher
I had the pleasure of hearing him speak at the Internpalooza in NYC. He taught me how to exercise my creative muscle by thinking of 10 new ideas every day. Whether it's app ideas of ideas for gifts. I'm still thinking of 10 ideas for him.

Ellen Degeneres
She never stops helping people and spreading love. Not only is she hilarious, she uses her fame to bring heroes to light, creating a better world.

My Mom and Dad
How could I not give these two a shout out? They emigrated from Russia with their newborn girl to the US at the age of 20 with nothing. They have worked so hard and provided me with such an amazing life filled with happiness and opportunities. Thanks mom & dad!
