Co-founder and President
Hey there! My name is Jamie Roeske and I am the co-founder and president of Heart 4 Heart UofC! This will be our second year as a chapter at the University of Calgary and my second year as president! I am entering the third year of my Bachelor of Science - Honors in Neuroscience degree and am currently in the process of applying to medical school for the first time! If im not holed up in my condo studying, I can usually be found volunteering in the Neonatal Follow-Up Clinic at the Alberta Children’s Hospital, conducting respiration-related research at the Hotchkiss Brain institute or recording audiobooks for a variety of genres. Being deeply passionate about pediatric healthcare, I decided to create Heart 4 Heart UofC to give both myself and the rest of the UofC student body the ability learn about the #1 birth defect in the world: congenital heart disease. Our first year as a club had a fantastic start but was unfortunately cut short due to COVID-19. We are ready to adapt to the challenges that we will face this coming year and continue to accelerate the Heart 4 Heart mission.
Hi everyone! My name is Mobina and I'm a third year Neuroscience student, minoring in Physics at the University of Calgary. During my childhood, my mother who was a teacher in a small town in my home country, Iran, always used to tell me stories about her students who had to work hard as a kid to financially support their families or children who were suffering from some disorders but their families were not able to support them financially. I could never understand why these angels, anywhere in the world, had to have this path in their lives but I always wanted to get involved and help them. Heart4Heart is one of the best places for this purpose.
One of my biggest dreams is to figure out the intersection of space and time and its perception. In my spare time, I love reading poetries and playing the piano. This year, I'm proud to be the VP Events at H4H and I'm looking forward to contribute my energy for the mission of our team and help to rise funds and awareness for children's lifesaving surgeries.
