Not only is this Richmond Hiller the youngest person on the list, she’s also the only Canadian and was nominated by fellow 905er Lilly Singh, a.k.a. YouTube superstar Superwoman. Alper’s book features 19 interviews that she conducted with change makers such as Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.

Look out 2018, Hannah Alper has come to conquer.
