Yamile Torres

Interim Interfaith Facilitator

Yami has a background in Psychology and she is currently pursuing her Master’s degree at Concordia University as an international student.

She will also be the Interfaith Facilitator at the Multi-faith and Spirituality Center until Febuary 2024.

Yami believes that human beings have the right to belong to caring, respectful, open, and diverse communities, in which they can develop themselves in a holistic manner. Furthermore, she seeks to reflect this in each of the events and activities of the department. For her, the most important thing is to provide safe spaces for people to be, explore, transform, and become.

People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Vedant Kirtidan Gadhavi

Chapel Assistant

Currently pursuing Master of Applied Computer Science at Concordia University, Vedant is quietly dedicated to both technology and life. Grounded in the belief that kindness transcends boundaries, he offers support within his capabilities, fostering a collective spirit focused on making the world a better place for everyone.

Away from the complexities of code, Vedant takes solace in storytelling, being an attentive and empathetic listener who appreciates the diversity of narratives. When it comes to music, Vedant enjoys exploring different genres but has a special love for the emotional nuances of Hindi melodies.

In collaborative efforts, Vedant brings a balanced mix of technical skills and a sincere appreciation for the human experience.

As a Chapel Assistant at Loyola Campus, he supports the Chapel Coordinator (Deborah) in running the chapel as a hospitable space for the concordia community and organizing events at it.

The day we know we're all the same
Together we can make that change.
