Hawa Hassan, author, entrepreneur and champion of community, discusses her path from refugee to model to business owner. Says Hassan: "I really double down on being resilient, but also being soft, letting things happen to me, feeling them and then adjusting accordingly.

Listen in to hear Hawa discuss her new cookbook "In Bibi's Kitchen" and the power of perspective.
