Hey! I'm Victoria Carenso, I'm majoring in Physiology and am currently in my third 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 2019 as I wanted to have more impact in the club and participate in the making of the events. After one year as the VP Fundraising I am now Co-Pres for this year and can't wait for this incredible opportunity to keep on the good work for the club! Looking forward to meet you at our events!

Hey everyone! My name is Tolga, I’m a U2 student at McGill. I’m a Psychology major and I also minor in Economics and Behavioral Science. It’s my second year as a mentor to my awesome buddy Joseph and my first year as the VP Internal. Beyond Me is an amazing club where you get to mentor and spend time with kids but most importantly, have lots of fun. The main goal of our exec team is to strengthen the friendship between our cool mentors and sweet buddies and plan super exciting activities in which we all have a great time. As the VP Internal, I’ll be matching McGill students with children with disabilities. The best part of my job is to get to see the progress between the buddies and the mentors. It’s a hard process that needs commitment, but the friendship you end up having is worth everything! Looking forward to seeing you among us.
