As a student in a diverse community, Hannah noticed that people tended to keep to themselves rather than interact with different people. She developed Question Connection, a card game distributed through her Question Connection Game nonprofit, to facilitate interpersonal connection and cultivate empathy at a time when social media and technology threaten in-person communication. Hannah conducts workshops teaching participants to use the cards openly and effectively in order to foster deeper connections between users. Question Connection is available in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Korean, and Hebrew; over 1200 copies have been distributed in eight countries, and the game has been implemented in youth groups, community centers, and schools.
