Maxwell Tran , 19
Recognizing that youth have important stories to tell, Maxwell founded Ink Movement in 2012. Ink Movement is a national non-profit organization that empowers youth through the arts and organizes book-publishing projects featuring young writers, photographers, and visual artists. Maxwell and his team have published two print volumes of the Mississauga Youth Anthology, showcasing the talented submissions of over 80 artists. The books are a platform for voices that are often underrepresented in literature. Aside from books, Ink Movement has organized workshops and conferences in Mississauga, Hamilton, and Montreal. To date, Ink Movement has helped 600+ youth and raised over $20,000.
