Gino Pastori-Ng was born and raised in Oakland, California, a city that provided profound life lessons on culture and social justice. The powerful connection between the former and the latter was illuminated throughout his childhood at La Pena Cultural Center in Berkeley. His formal education took place at UC Santa Cruz, where walks through the forest cultivated a passion for environmental stewardship, and a summer abroad in Barcelona inspired an insatiable appetite for global exploration. After completing a B.A. in psychology, Gino spent 2 years in South America and Asia, teaching English, learning Spanish and Portuguese, attempting to learn Mandarin, and photographing everything in between. Back in his hometown, he supported the launch of a new elementary school in East Oakland and educated thousands of California voters about environmental policy before finding his purpose in youth social entrepreneurship. Based on the belief that the people most impacted by the problems are the ones best equipped to create innovative and sustainable solutions, he co-founded Youth Impact Hub Oakland, as the first co-working space for youth-led innovation in a global network of over 100 Impact Hubs. At Youth Impact Hub Oakland, Gino has unified his passions for social justice, mindfulness, environmental awareness and youth development to launch over 70 youth-led social enterprise projects.
