Isis Anderson - Co-President

Hi! My name is Isis Anderson, and I'll be one of your Co-Presidents this year. I'm a sophomore from New Haven, Connecticut, but my family immigrated from Kingston and Saint Andrews, Jamaica! I'm currently double majoring in Political Science and African and African American Studies. Other than CSA, I am a part of Stanford Women's Rugby, the Black Feminist Collective, and I am a Senior Operator at Stanford Center for Professional Development. If you are interested in learning about navigating Stanford as a first generation, low income (FLI) student, listening to 90s R&B music, or maintaining a healthy balance of self-care and your work/academic priorities, don't hesitate to hit me up! I'm really excited for the year ahead of us and another great year for CSA!

Valexa Orelien - Co-President

Hi, my name is Valexa Orelien and I am a sophomore studying Computer Science. I was born and raised in Apex, North Carolina, but my family is from Haiti and currently lives throughout the French Caribbean, Canada, and the States! Other than CSA, I am involved in BSU, SBSE, Seeds of Change, and I am an on-campus ambassador for SAS. Last year, I was glad to be involved and find community in CSA, so I am very excited to be co-President of CSA this year!
