  Yi Yangqianxi may be a member of popular Chinese boy band TFBoys but he has also been moving beyond the youth celebrity set to take on a global role to present a positive and progressive image of his generation.

  The singer, dancer and actor, also known as Jackson Yi, turned 17 in late November.

  A month before, he gave a speech in Geneva as one of the four youth leaders from China at the invitation of the World Health Organization, calling for the elimination of AIDS discrimination. Shortly after, he, together with the rest three, was awarded the title of WHO China's special envoys for health.
