Hi Everyone! My name is Joshua Feld and I am a second-year biology major at Dalhousie University. In my spare time, I enjoy hockey, ultimate frisbee, camping, chess and getting involved in my community. I have always had a passion for heart-related initiatives like the Heart4Heart charity and have done extensive work fundraising with the Ride for Heart and advocating for increased CPR awareness and greater accessibility to AEDs in schools and public buildings in Toronto. I also volunteered in public health in Madagascar and saw the lack of funding and resources they had in their local hospitals. With limited medical supplies, people with treatable conditions such as congenital heart disease could not receive the life-saving surgeries needed to survive. For that reason, I felt compelled to take part in the Heart4Heart charity and I am grateful to be able to help create positive change in the world by giving children the opportunity to live fulfilling lives.

Hello! My name is Emma Yazbek and I am a 4th year student at Dalhousie majoring in political science and psychology. When I'm not studying, I love to spend my free time outside, going for hikes and taking my dog, Maggie, to Point Pleasant Park. I have always been passionate about helping those in need and H4H is a great way to do so. Once I heard about the organization and read about the group’s goals I was so excited to get involved and help out right away! I’m looking forward to creating change and new opportunities in the lives of these children.

Hello! My name is Phoebe Seely (she/her) and I am a second-year BSc student at Dalhousie University majoring in Sustainability and Physics & Atmospheric Sciences. In my free time, I love spending time outside on my front porch and I’ve recently started learning how to swing dance! I’m really excited to be involved with H4H to help create a positive impact for children and youth with CHD. My personal experience with a congenital heart defect has really amplified my desire to help other youth with heart conditions, and I feel really grateful to be part of this organization which helps provide life-changing surgical care for children and youth in need.
