Hello! My name is Morgan Stedman and I am from Ottawa, Ontario. I am in my second year at Dalhousie currently in Arts with a minor in law. I love performance arts and have always thrived in front of an audience, from theatre stages to playing musical performances.

Hey! My name is Anastasija Jemcov, Ana for short. I’m currently majoring in Psychology at Dalhousie University. I’ve lived in many places in my life, such as New Hampshire in the USA, Sheffield in England, Toronto in Canada, and of course, Halifax. I’m excited to be supporting and aiding this cause and cannot wait to see the numbers of children given a new opportunity keep rising higher. My hope is that more and more people will become aware of congenital heart disease and the positive impact that they, as an individual, can make on a child’s life.
Hey! My name is Alex McCabe and I am in my 4th year of University at Dalhousie in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This is my first year getting involved with Heart4Heart and I am extremely excited! Along with attending university, I have a part-time job at Broadway Cheesecake, which I love. I enjoy playing sports, especially soccer with my intramural team at Dal, and I also try to practice photography in my spare time. When my cousin told me that she was trying to bring the Heart4Heart charity to Dalhousie, I quickly jumped on board. It is an amazing charity that helps to improve the lives of children who were born with heart disease and I would love nothing more than to lend a hand in raising awareness and donations for these children and their families. This is a quote that I try to remember every day – “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.” Cheers.

I also enjoy playing basketball through Dalhousie intramurals and various summer leagues in Toronto, my home town. I have always loved getting involved with various charities that help better an individuals life. After hearing about what Heart4Heart does for children with heart disease, I immediately volunteered. I am more than excited to help increase awareness and fundraise for Heart4Heart Charity to ensure that these children with heart disease are given a chance to live a healthy and prosperous life.

Hey there, my name is Ben Abbott and I am a second year student at Dalhousie University, studying Urban Planning and Sustainability. I am originally from Toronto, Ontario spending my summer months at home working construction. One of my favorite things to do is snowboard, spending almost all my weekends in Collingwood, Ontario racing Boardercross throughout my high school career. I also like to travel. In grade 11, I travelled to Kenya on a service trip, where I partook in the construction a new class room at a local primary school, played with the kids during their classes, and brought fresh fruit and supplies to an orphanage full of kids in need. This was an experience that made me want to do more to help out kids struggling in challenging situation, such as those supported by Heart-4-Heart. I look forward to getting started and am excited to see what our contribution can do for the cause.
