Hey loves, I’m Sarah, I’m in my last year doing my Honours in Anatomy and Cell Biology. I joined Heart4Heart because I wanted my efforts to change a child’s life! This is my fourth year working with the team and my second as President (let’s go!!). In my free time I enjoy looking at cell samples, just kidding, I don’t have free time ❤ I’m from Beirut, Lebanon, where all the best food comes from - you’re welcome 🙂 I speak 4 languages, I love cats but I’m allergic, also pineapple on pizza smacks. It’s such a delight to be working with the growing Heart4Heart exec team. Together, we’ll positively influence the McGill community and provide a child with the opportunity to live a long and healthy life.

Hi everyone! I'm your VP Internal Hayley and this is my second year with Heart4Heart. I am in my third year at McGill studying Political Science and Sociology.

Hi everyone! My name is Peter and I am a U2 student in the Faculty of Management. I grew up in Athens, went on to live in Copenhagen for five years and have now been living in Montreal for almost eight years. I’m extremely pleased to be part of this great initiative and work with such a dedicated team. I’m grateful for the opportunity to help children in need and raise awareness about congenital heart disease overall. I’m excited for what’s ahead and hope to get others to be part of our cause.

VP Fundraising

Hey everyone, my name is Nick and I’m in my last year of Anatomy and Cell Biology. As an aspiring physician, I am so excited to be joining this dedicated team and I am motivated to make a difference and raise awareness for children in need! I was born and raised in Montreal and as you can probably tell from my picture,  (literally the only headshot I have of myself) I run track competitively and even for McGill. Despite my busy schedule, I will always find a night or two a week to relax at a cafe with a book or friends, and also for a restaurant! Some of the things that make me the happiest in life are FOOD, training, my friends, family, and my dog Lenny. I am looking forward to the year ahead with the Heart4Heart Foundation as VP of Fundraising!!

VP Events

Hello! My name is Jerry and I’m from tiny little Oakville, Ontario. I’m a U2 majoring in Anatomy and Cell Biology. Outside of class, you can find me hiking, playing piano, and trying to find a working BIXI bike. If I’m not eating food, more often than not, I’m cooking it! Two useless facts about me: I have an irrational fear of going bald, and my doctor said I have defective valves or something. Also, I own a stethoscope to listen through walls.

I’m very grateful to call myself part of Heart4Heart and raise funds and awareness for children living with CHD. I look forward to the year ahead as your VP Outreach!
