And there's more to do we talk an awful lot about brands. Having a purpose we often fall down and activating it and measuring and this is a beautiful example of activation a beautiful example so ac. I want to move to the lightning round to close this out and the first question half for you. Is you danced and acted in college. What was your favorite role performance. Oh wow the colored museum with a shonda rhimes was my director. Actually you're kidding. No that's how. I sean sean there. From the reason we talked about it recently.

She is so freaking talented. just amazing. Well listen i wanna ask you about cody and unilever products and your beauty and wellness regimen. So what's your favorite products from those companies that are still in your regimen So unilever i would say my favorite right now is a new product. I just launched. Which is malay even tone corrector. Levitz new brand may lay is short for mellon skin. It's melanin skincare. And it's a serum and it I love it. I love it. So that's my.

You're a very highly awarded leader from so many different organizations. Women's wear daily at age e. t. ebony on and on what's been the most meaningful one. That is a really good question. Trying to think. I'm looking over at my trophy case to see really what means a lot to me is when i'm rewarded for impact In so i got an internal award at unilever for the crown act and it's got the compass award and i got that earlier this year And that was really meaningful. Have gotten a lot of awards. And i'm so grateful for that. Her legacy Awards are i got one from add color that was. I think it's called the legacy of war. So i appreciate those as well. The ones i really appreciated the one to show the impact. So i think most recently was this unilever compass award this out of our whole global unilever's a very global organization and big in india big in china so a lot of the impact programs come out of markets from lifebuoy and then to see the us the acknowledged for the impact. And i hate to say an internal war because i value external. But it's the one that i can point to. It really is about impact. The others tend to be more about leadership or lasting impact in the industry. Which i appreciate but so what. Are you most passionate about right now. I'd say wellness twenty twenty with kovin was like anti wellness in so i'm into personally. How do i get back in. More of healthier practices have always do my japanese water therapy. I'd do my intermittent fasting but those are probably the to stock some trying to get back into my fitness routine. Back into meditating back into moving and walking and then. I'm really thoughtful about wellness in the community chest. What can we do to have give people the richer wellness experience. You have an incredible personal board of directors. I read about them. I think the wall street journal did a piece on that. If you add it one more and it could be anyone who would that be see. I would say like obama. Barack obama both between the two. Can you. yeah. I'm about midway through his big book. I'm at about three hundred fifty pages.
