Hey everyone! My name is Tolga, I’m a U3 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.

Hi! My name is Charlotte, and I’m a U1 student in the Faculty of Arts majoring in Philosophy and Sociology with a minor in Psychology. I joined the Beyond Me organization as a mentor in 2019 and have served as VP Outreach since Winter 2020. Being involved as a mentor with Beyond Me means not only helping a child feel welcomed, it also means creating a long-lasting bond with them through games and endless fun. As VP Outreach, I help Beyond Me raise awareness about the special-needs community and collaborate with schools to pass our mandate along to potential mentees.
