Co-Founder of U of T Chapter
Sandy is a graduate at the Institute of Medical Science at the University of Toronto. Sandy co-founded the U of T chapter back in 2015, and has been serving as a president and a director ever since the chapter opened its door. Sandy was first faced with the realities of human trafficking when she was in high school when working with the human rights team back in Winnipeg. Ever since, her journey as an activist for anti-human trafficking efforts began by raising awareness and fundraising for the victims who were affected. Sandy believes that human trafficking is a multidimensional issue that must be tackled at every level, and wishes that through her chapter, she will be able to gain a network of students who can help her join the fight to end this issue with tremendous amounts light and love. Outside of LOVE146, Sandy spends most of her time swooning over soft plushies which is currently overpowering her work desk (and might be causing a fire hazard issue).
Oriana is going into her third year, double-majoring in History and Contemporary Asian Studies, and minoring in Political Science. The fight to end human trafficking has been a cause that Oriana has been passionate about since high-school. She is honored and excited to further support it this year as the Co-President of Love146 University of Toronto Chapter. In addition to working for Love146, Oriana is also the proud mother of a Pomsky and enjoys reading mystery novels (especially Agatha Christie!).
Adele is currently the co-president of Love146 University of Toronto Chapter. She is in 3rd year studying Ethics, Society, and Law, Political Science, and Contemporary Asian Studies. Joining Love146 is important to her because the issues of human trafficking are overlooked in today's modern context, so learning more about the cause is imperative to ensure that the issue is acknowledged and addressed. A fun fact about Adele is that she is also a lover of basketball and football.
As the Vice-President of LOVE146 University of Toronto Chapter, Ben Tiangco wants to spread awareness of issues regarding human trafficking and promote the human rights of many affected individuals victimized by it. He aims to help be a part of a solution to reduce incidences of human trafficking and harassment within the local community.
In addition to LOVE146 University of Toronto Chapter, Ben is also a volunteer for the Human Biology Student Union and a part-time City of Toronto Recreation worker. While at school, he is currently studies under Global Health and Health Studies double major in hopes to pursue a field in public health. Considering his expertise and outgoing nature and knowledge of human rights, Ben is perfectly suited to be this chapter’s Vice-President.
