Hi! I’m David and I’m a project coordinator with QSpeak. In my role, I work closely with my co-project coordinator, Jose, to manage the committees associated with QSpeak and keep everything running as smoothly as possible. I’m always looking for ways we can improve the program to give our QSpeakers the best experience possible! Outside of QSpeak, I’m a second year BHSc student at McMaster University, I watch exorbitant amounts of anime in a day, and I recently became obsessed with making baba ganoush.
Hello, my name is Angela and was previously the lead ambassador but have since transitioned to the Project Coordinator exec. I now work to create a fun, inclusive and interactive program for all our QSpeakers to enjoy. I also work on a lot of the organzation's development and growth. School wise, I'm studying to become a Computer Engineer so if you ever need someone to geek out over programming (and video games!) I'm here :)

Hi! I'm Ollie, and I'm an ambassador here at QSpeak, which means I’m one of the friendly faces students will see week to week to discuss LGBTQIA2+ topics, or overseeing the space while students make meaningful connections through the QSpeak program.

Hi! My name is Emma and I'm a QSpeak ambassador. I get to lead discussions with teens each week about LGBTQ2S+ topics, and am always looking for ways to do this blessing of a role better. I'm also a third-year student at Simon Fraser University studying communications and political science. When I'm not doing those things, I like to write, listen to music and podcasts, and make great focaccia bread.
Hey, I'm Nicky, and I work for the Graphics team at QSpeak! I really enjoy the process of creating graphics and I love that I get to share LGBTQ+ content through what I make! I hope the content QSpeak creates and the message we share helps QSpeakers everywhere.

Hello, my name is Helen Tran and I'm part of the Program Development Team for QSpeak.

We want participants to feel as comfortable and open as possible with their identities and opinions! I'm currently a second year Chemical Engineering student at the University of Toronto who plays video games, can make a mechanical keyboard, and has way too many yarn crafting hobbies from Tunisian crochet to weaving on a loom.
Hi there! I'm Iulia and I am one of the many wonderful core program developers. Our team works to put together the interesting and thought-provoking activities for our QSpeakers.

I am a recent high school graduate and former QSpeaker myself. I absolutely love teaching, especially since I am in my first year in Concurrent Education at Queen's University. Outside of academics, I am a huge nerd with an obsession for Dungeons and Dragons, video games and cosplay.
