Board of Directors
Farah Musharbash

Co-Founder

Hello there! My name is Farah Musharbash and I'm studying Medicine at the Washington University School of Medicine. My hometown is Oakville Ontario, although I grew up in the capital city of Jordan, Amman. When I'm not stuck studying or in lectures, you can find me on the basketball court, in the research lab or out with friends. My experience with Heart 4 Heart has been very satisfying and rewarding. It's an honour for me to work with amazing people all united by a common cause.

I highly recommend you to join our team too - I promise it will be a rewarding experience!

Nancy Li

Greetings! My name is Nancy and I am a law student currently pursuing a Juris Doctor degree, and who happens to be very fond of cats, coffee and long walks along the beach. Having seen the tremendous growth of Heart 4 Heart Charity since its birth at McGill University in 2013, I am endlessly inspired by the dedication of my peers in Montréal and across our North American chapters. I take immense pride in serving on the Board of Heart 4 Heart as its mandate remains dear to my heart. I wish for Heart 4 Heart to continue aspiring towards raising awareness and spurring the movement to grant the gift of life and possibility to every child, and I firmly believe that passion, kindness and a dash of creativity will bring the biggest dreams to fruition.
