Lover of the Lord. Young Activist. Dreamer. Optimist. Express Yourself.
Founder & Chief Adventurer of HOPE Tour
In my 23 years of life, I’m proud to have been awarded two prestigious scholarships, had the opportunity to travel the world, start several organizations, take countless leadership positions, and most importantly, strive to serve and love well.
Media has been my instrument of change. Ever since falling in love with broadcasting at ten years old, I have been on the path to use the power of communications to make an impact.
When my mom was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy, I turned helplessness into purpose by founding my own charitable organization called the Biehn Team that has raised thousands of dollars for Muscular Dystrophy, and I am now an emcee for the charity’s events. I served as Shawnee High School's Class of 2014 president, and one of my proudest moments was being elected Governor of the American Legion Jersey Boys State conference.
I was awarded Ithaca College’s full merit Park Scholarship for excellence in communications, community service, leadership, and academics. I also was named a Coca-Cola national scholar, one of my highest honors.
I am a passionate mental health advocate, and I started my own campaign called Listen. Learn. Accept. to speak up for mental illness and promote acceptance for mood disorders. I coined this analogy: “Depression makes the world change from color to black and white.” I was accepted into the Clinton Foundation Global Initiative University for my efforts to start a mood disorder support group.
I received invaluable experience at Fox 29 working for Evening News and The Q entertainment talk show, interning for Tremr in London, and organizing the Believe in Love community event in Ithaca, NY to promote social justice, equality, and volunteering with speakers, performers & celebrities.
My faith is the center of my identity, and I served on the Ithaca College Protestant Community’s executive council and sat on the board. I helped start the Alpha faith class through my Ithaca Vineyard church and served as the emcee, and now I help lead the course in South Jersey. My faith has also inspired me to serve with the homeless. I launched the Ithaca Homeless Crisis campaign last year to fundraise, mobilize, and spread awareness for this crucial cause in my college community. I have built many relationships with people who are homeless in Ithaca, ranging from officiating & facilitating a homeless couple’s wedding to organizing a HOPE for the Homeless event where all attendees had a wonderful meal and went home with free prizes (including a bike, grill, multiple guitars, etc.).
HOPE Tour 2020 (Healing Opportunities for People Everywhere) is my future cross-country initiative, and I’m thrilled for this adventure of a lifetime. I have been dedicating my life to making the world a better place for all of us. My name is Christopher Biehn, and I’m just beginning to make a difference.

My Life Vision Statement
describe yourself in 3 words
faithful, passionate, loving
Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky. –Rabindranath Tagore
I believe in the power of optimism, the promise of faith, and the need to spread love while keeping an open mind. I strive to change the world with one act of kindness at a time and to enjoy every possible moment. I hope to touch the lives of others by being genuine, promoting courage, and living with enthusiasm. Everyday I am mindful to appreciate the little things in life. I am a dreamer and my vision is to glorify God.

Ithaca's Homeless Crisis Campaign
Christopher founded a group to fundraise, educate, and mobilize people in the Ithaca, NY community about the homeless crisis where it's the worst it's ever been; 15 people have died within the last year. He spearheaded this campaign that has raised over $8,000 for two nonprofits working directly with homelessness in the community. He volunteers extensively and has built relationships with the homeless and helps to provide for their needs.
Believe in Love community event
Christopher was inspired when Coldplay displayed the Believe in Love message at Super Bowl 50. With the extreme division in our country, he decided to initiate an event in Ithaca, NY to promote social justice, equality, and volunteering with speakers, performers & celebrities. Dr. Habib Sadeghi was the keynote speaker representing the Love Button Global Movement, and Emmanuel Kelly was the headlining performer.
