SERENA DYER:

Student and aspiring human rights activist. At just 24 this vivacious grad student keeps it real with travel, cooking and a little family time. Crystal ball: “I am willing to try a lot of different things so, for now, the future is really up in the air,” says Dyer of her plans after completing her Juris Doctor degree at the St. Thomas University School of Law where she’s studying human trafficking, an issue she became passionate about while studying for her master’s degree at the University of Miami. The parental effect: “My mom and dad’s entire lives have been based on helping others reach their highest selves, so I have been raised on the idea of lifting up those around me. I have seen firsthand how my dad [author of best-selling self-help books The Power of Intention, Excuses Begone! and Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life] and his work have changed people’s lives and I find that really inspiring.” Extracurricular activities: Dyer is also pursuing her interests in acting and cooking, even developing a cooking show focusing on “real” food. — Meredith Mulligan

Best off-the-radar spot in Miami?I’m not sure how off-the-radar it is, but Shoji for sushi is definitely my favorite in Miami. In the Design District, I love Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink.

What’s on your nightstand? The Pillars of the Earth and every first-year law school book that exists!
