Humanity is faced with some daunting challenges. There are over 300,000 active child soldiers in 30 countries around the globe and eradicating this issue has the illusion of being impossible. A true idealist, Zac Whyte is a regular family man, university student and media professional living in British Columbia, Canada who left his job after eight years in the network broadcasting industry to redesign his life around social entrepreneurship and actively engage poverty related children's issues on a daily basis. He has made civic contribution a lifestyle instead of an effort. Using his leadership skills, media expertise, creativity and passion to lead by example, Zac is on a mission to challenge people to design their life around a purpose and give them an opportunity to face their fear of success to make what some members of his community call "impossible dreams" an established reality.
