Author: Yelfri De Leon

Hello there! My name is Yelfri De Leon. I am a Senior majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance at the College of Saint Rose. I come from many different places, but I currently live in New York City. During my time here at Saint Rose, I have been involved in a range of different student organizations. I have served on the Executive Board of Relay for Life, and SIFE, and have been a mentor for HEOP students and international students. I have also been an Orientation Leader in the past. I recently returned back from studying abroad in London - and wish I could go back! haha :)
