A change catalyst, Charles Tsai is dedicated to helping young people imagine and realize a better future for themselves and their communities. He mentors young changemakers through his work with Ashoka, the world's largest incubator of youth-led ventures, as well as his own charity, Global Youth Fund. He is also the creator of The Creative Activist Toolkit, an interactive visual guide to social change written for and by young leaders. How did this passion for social change come about? Perhaps it's from living a life constantly on the move. Born in Taiwan, Charles spent his early years moving from Thailand to Malawi to different cities in the United States and then to Canada, where he now lives. He studied English Literature and Rhetoric at University of California at Berkeley and got his Master's degree in journalism from Columbia University. Charles then worked as a reporter and producer for CNN at its global headquarters. He specialized in educational features and produced the 10-part series, Millennium Voyage, which followed American students on their educational travels around the world. He then left CNN to produce PBS GlobalTribe, a groundbreaking show that profiled changemakers around the world.
