Parsa Farhangdoost

Director of Sponsorship and Events

Parsa is a 4th year student pursuing a double major in Political Science and Criminology. About a year ago, he was exposed to the issue of human trafficking in developed nations like Canada and the United Kingdom. Shocked at how this atrocity can take place so close to his hometown, he planned to get involved in the fight against this issue. That’s when he found out about LOVE146 and the organization’s chapter at UofT. This year, Parsa will serve as the Director of Sponsorship and Events, where he hopes to raise awareness of human trafficking through engaging events and socials! If you can’t find him in Robarts Library (you probably will), Parsa is most likely cooling off at a live EDM show somewhere around downtown Toronto.

Alicia Demanuele

Deputy Director of Events

Alicia Demanuele is a third-year student completing a double major in political science and criminology & sociolegal studies at University of Toronto. Alicia joined Love146 after reading about the prevalence and impact of child trafficking and exploitation. She was unaware of the scales on which this issue occurs at both a domestic and international level. As a part of the UofT Love146 chapter, she aims to spread awareness among the university population, as well as the public, about how human trafficking poses threats internationally and is not only a problem of underprivileged countries. Outside of UofT and Love146, Alicia enjoys playing tennis and works as a certified tennis instructor.

Divij Daryanani

Deputy Director of Sponsorship

Divij Daryanani is a second year international student, who is passionate about changing and influencing people in the best way possible. As the Deputy Director of Sponsorship, he is excited about reaching out and contacting members of the community to directly inform and empower people to get involved and help out in anyway they can. He views human trafficking as one of the worst issues today, and is dedicated to doing his bit to, hopefully, make a difference. In school, Divij is studying psychology and criminology, as he hopes his studies will provide him more of a guilt-free excuse to binge watch crime documentaries/thrillers during his free time.
