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.
