Hey! I’m Ece Albayrak. I’m a senior undergraduate in McGill. I am majoring in Psychology and Sociology and minoring in Behavioural Science. I have been a member of Beyond Me for four years now and I have an amazing buddy called AJ, which happens to be my nickname as well. I have been involved in volunteer work for more than 9 years now with different groups of people. What I love about Beyond Me is that it provides a sweet opportunity for working with kids and influencing them in a way that can help them throughout their whole life along with meeting other students of McGill. This year, I am one of the co-presidents. Janson and I will be overseeing all operations of the Exec team and provide help for all our members.
Hey folks! My name is Janson and I’m a U1 student at McGill. It’s my second year as a mentor to my incredible buddy and friend Adam, and my first semester as a co-president with AJ! Our amazing exec team hopes to continue to foster and build more strong relationships between our wonderful mentors and buddies. I’m really excited for this year with Beyond Me - we have many fun activities planned for our buddies and mentors (including bowling and ceramics day!) If you’d like to become a part of the Beyond Me community, fill out the registration forms above for parents or new mentors!
Hello! My name is Chloé and I’m an honours Psychology student at McGill. This is my third year with Beyond Me, first as a member, then as VP Fundraising and now as VP Internal. I also continue to mentor my buddy, whom I met in first year. Beyond Me has taught me a simple message: building meaningful relationships takes time and effort, but it is worth it without a doubt. As a VP Internal, I work to match McGill students with children with disabilities. It is always so inspiring to get updates on how the matches are going, and how special they are in their own ways. I love the cause and hope you join us so it continues to flourish!

Hey! I’m Victoria Carenso, I’m majoring in Physiology and am currently in my second year at McGill. I’ve been a mentor for Beyond Me since I arrived at McGill and it truly is one of the best experience I ever had. My buddy is incredible and I am so happy I can help him and his family in their daily routine. I’ve joined the executive team in fall 2018 as I wanted to have more impact in the club and participate in the making of events.
