My name is Gabriela Salazar. I’m a 2nd-year double major in Political Science and Latin American and Iberian Studies, and I’m running to be your next Letters and Science Senator!
As a first-generation college student, navigating college was difficult but, with the proper resources and support UCSB has become my second home and campus I deeply care about. As your next L&S senator, I am committed to making UCSB your second home where your voices are amplified, and your student fees continue to fund resources supporting you as a successful gaucho while creating a better college experience! I’ll take on the position with transparency and dedication to create a safe and welcoming environment to discuss the goals and concerns in our UCSB community. Based on my previous leadership roles uplifting and advocating for students of all backgrounds and working alongside departments to improve the quality and accessibility of resources, I have equipped the skills necessary to be a reliable L&S senator.
