How’s it going UCSB!
I’m Yasamin Salari (she/her/hers), a third year Political Science major and I am so excited to be running as YOUR next EXTERNAL VICE PRESIDENT FOR LOCAL AFFAIRS (EVPLA) with Isla Vista Party!!
I moved to the U.S. when I was 11 years old and I’ve never felt more at home than when I’m walking on the streets of IV or just hanging out on the lib lawn. I want to work WITH you to bring about TANGIBLE change and to create a more inclusive UCSB experience!
