I am so very honored to announce the launch of my new company: Malena!
My life's work as an international human rights lawyer, with a focus on innovative approaches to economic development, and conversations with people all over the world, have taught me that we all want the same things: health, something to believe in, to belong, and a chance for a better tomorrow.

Congrats to Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi for winning the Nobel Peace Prize for championing every child's right to education, and inspiring us all.
