Vice President


Yulissa Salazar

Name: Yulissa Salazar

Year: Senior

Position: Vice President

Studying: Biochemistry, Pre-med track

Why did you join Senate: I joined Senate because as a women of color, I wanted to give other women of color a voice on campus. Being on Senate has placed me in a leadership position where I am able to help other fellow bennies use their voices to help our CSB/SJU community flourish.

Where do you see yourself in 20 years: In 20 years I hope to be living somewhere with luscious greenery such as Washington or Hawaii. In 20 years I hope to be a Neonatologist or a Neonatal surgeon with a big family.
