Chelsea Clinton’s bestselling book It's Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going! mixes facts, charts, photographs, and stories of the world around us—and shows how anyone can make a difference. Geared to an audience aged ten and up, It’s Your World inspires readers to do their part to make our world a better place. It tells the stories of children and teens who have made real changes big and small—in their families and their communities, in our country, and across the world—on issues such as poverty, global warming, obesity, gender inequality, and cancer. Clinton breaks it all down with numbers, historical context, and possible solutions, to give each of us the power, whether in government or in school, to make a difference every day.
When she was a child in Arkansas, one of Chelsea Clinton’s favorite books was 50 Simple Things Kids Can Do to Save the Earth, and as a teenager in Washington, D.C., she led her school’s service club. While at Stanford, Clinton worked as a reading and writing tutor and volunteered at the Children’s Hospital. Today, Chelsea Clinton is Vice Chair of the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, where she helps lead the work of the foundation across its various initiatives, with a particular focus on work related to health, women and girls, creating service opportunities, and empowering the next generation of leaders. She holds a BA from Stanford University, an MPH from Columbia University, and an MPhil and doctorate degree in international relations from Oxford University.
