April Tam Smith drew inspiration from Cynthia Petterson, CEO of Share Hope, who launched her business by mortgaging her home as a single mom. Encouraged by this, April and her partners invested time, money, and energy into creating an upscale vegan restaurant in New York. This restaurant, called PS Kitchen, not only donates profits to organizations fighting poverty but also provides meaningful employment. Despite challenges, PS Kitchen eventually opened, and April balances her commitment to it alongside her day job. Her purpose lies in affirming significance and inspiring hope in others.
