Meet Our Executive Board Members

President: Vaishnavi Kasabwala
Vaishnavi Kasabwala

Hi! I’m a second-semester senior pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Economics from Cleveland. This is actually my first and last semester on campus! I am looking into going to graduate school through a Ph.D. program and am hoping to specialize in econometrics. I will finally realize my mom’s dream of me being a doctor, granted it’s not the doctor she planned or expected, but a doctor nonetheless!
Fun Fact: I wear colored contacts because my eyesight is so bad that it is very difficult for me to see clear ones.

Hello, my name is Kylie Czikray. I’m a third year PPE and economics major with a minor in legal foundations of society. I’m still exploring my economics major and not sure what I want to do when I graduate. My hobbies include working out, reading, feeding my coffee addiction, hanging out with friends, and watching movies.
