Adam Lowy, 27 Move For Hunger, Founder and Executive Director
Accomplishments: Founding an organization dedicated to relieving hunger by tapping into the potential of the moving and relocation industry; signing up hundreds of moving companies in 46 states to donate food that otherwise would get thrown out during a move; raising awareness of hunger and its effects.
Super Power: Mindreading.
Most Influential Role Models: "My parents have always instilled in me the importance of working hard and helping others. I take that with me in everything I do, and they certainly have shaped my thinking in the creation of Move For Hunger."
Steps to Balance Life and Work: "I am fortunate to be able to travel quite a bit for work. I've made friends in virtually every state. Creating meaningful relationships with the people you do business with has been important. In addition, just shutting down is also important. Last year, I took my first 10-day vacation since starting Move For Hunger. No phone, no email. It was amazing."
People Would Be Surprised to Know: "If you put me in a room with a piano, I'm definitely going to play it."
