The Four Agreements DON MIGUEL RUIZ

I find [some of] the agreements, “Be impeccable with your word, don’t take anything personally, and don’t make assumption­s,” to be an incredible framework for daily life. Just Mercy BRYAN STEVENSON

I don’t think I’ve ever cried so much while reading a book. Bryan Stevenson’s declaratio­n about the power of getting proximate to people who are suffering informs everything I do.

I revisited this book after Toni Morrison passed away last year. It was even more heart wrenching, poignant, and surprising­ly relevant than the first time I read it, in high school.

The Color of Money MEHRSA BAHRASADAN

This book shook up my perspectiv­e about how the racial wealth gap in the U.S. can be tackled and added an in-depth historical perspectiv­e that I needed.
