From the speaker's bio: 

Nicholas Kristof has been a columnist for The New York Times since 2001. He grew up on a farm in Oregon, graduated from Harvard, studied law at Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar, and then studied Arabic in Cairo. He was a longtime foreign correspondent for The New York Times and speaks various languages. Mr. Kristof has won two Pulitzer Prizes for his coverage of Tiananmen Square and the genocide in Darfur, along with many humanitarian awards such as the Anne Frank Award and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize. With his wife, Sheryl WuDunn, he has written several books, most recently “A Path Appears” (September 2014) about how to make a difference. Their previous book, “Half the Sky,” was a No. 1 best seller. Their latest book, “Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope,” was published in January 2020. Mr. Kristof, who has lived on four continents and traveled to more than 150 countries, was the first The New York Times blogger and has millions of followers across social media platforms.
