Changemakers North America Network Manager
ThienVinh Nguyen is the Courses Product Lead and Knowledge Manager for Ashoka Changemakers, which combines her in interests in community engagement, pedagogy, research, and social impact. ThienVinh (pronounced Tin-Vin, also known as T.V.) has been with Ashoka for over four years—in a variety of capacities and from different locations—where she's identified and selected innovators for our opportunities, built network partnerships, and organized online and offline convenings. Vietnamese-born, California-grown, ThienVinh has studied, lived, and worked on four continents. When she’s not busy creating a more interconnected and socially conscious world, she can be found writing her PhD dissertation—on the topic of urban development and governance in the oil city of Sekondi-Takoradi, Ghana. In her spare time, ThienVinh is an avid flora and fungi forager, cook, and ceramicist.
