This Week’s (SLE)ak Peek: Gaby Jassir


Hi, I’m Gaby, and I’m SLE Central’s Director of Programs this semester. I’m a senior at Brown concentrating in Economics and Development Studies. I’m originally from Barranquilla, Colombia but I’ve lived in Tampa, Florida since I was seven years old. I’ve been a part of SLE since summer 2015, when I helped restructure the training programs for our fellows. Now, I am in my second semester as the Director of Programs. As Director of Programs, I coordinate operations across all SLE campuses and ensure courses run smoothly. More specifically, I reach out to each of the coordinators at SLE campuses in order to connect them with resources or help them troubleshoot any problems they may have. I love this role because I get to communicate with and get to know all of the members of the SLE community, especially fellows and coordinators. This semester, we’re recruiting fellows in four different universities: Williams, Tufts, Brandeis, and Brown. We hope to have courses running by the end of October, and expect to see a large diversity of language offerings. I can’t wait to see how the semester unfolds, and how SLE, and we as team members, grow.
