So you're a creative person, what inspires you?
Senese:
A. My faith inspires me, greatly. So does the generation behind me. Knowing that there are youngsters that are growing up without leadership or guidance. This fuels me to ensure I'm being a great example and showing leadership though giving back and informing the youth of very important topics such as dressing for success, interview preparation and dealing with first date jitters!

I've teamed up with a teacher at Westinghouse College Prep High School and together we formed: "The Gentleman's Project" where gentlemen come to Nordstrom for an afternoon and we have other men in our community (from Football players in the NFL, stay at home dads and a small town city Commissioner) pour into our youth, the value of hard work and dedication. I recently completed a teaching to the Youth of the Commonground foundation geared toward: Interview Preparation. We later on went to Google Headquarters and met with other leaders from around the world in medicine, technology, travel and business that answered questions and gave information on the industry of their interest.
