We are a small, dedicated team with the same passions: writing and activism. Join us on our journey to feature more youth voices from around the world.



Aiden Zhou (he/him) is a junior in Canada. A lifelong reader, he fell in love with literature at a young age and  hopes that True to You can be a place for young people to create and share their own stories. He believes in the importance of advocacy, especially from the next generation. In his spare time, Aiden can be found playing chess or falling into a novel. 


George Sun (he/him) is a writer from Canada. Fascinated by creative writing and its ability to connect one another, he hopes True to You will let youth address the stories and issues that matter in the world.

As a Photography Editor, he aligns with True to You's mission–to bring light on youth's voices through not only literary means, but also in artistic forms, such as photojournalism. Other than the arts, he enjoys playing competitive badminton, and going to robotics tournaments.
