New York State Model Senate Session Project Participants/Videos 2008

Hostos breaks a record and sends ten brilliant women to the 2008 New York State Model Senate!

Yissely Ortiz Yissely Ortiz (D) represented District 27 where she sat in the seat of New York State Senator Carl Kruger. In her first foray into the public eye, Yissely began to love the intricacies of public speaking and politics and after all was said and done she changed her choice of study from dental hygiene to political science. In addition, Yissely has utilized some of the training that she received both as a Hostos Student Ambassador and as a participant in the New York State Model Senate Session to explore her desire to be on stage. In the 2008-2009 academic year, Yissely actually appeared in two theatrical productions at the college and was a participant at the American College Theater Festival Region Two competition in Philadelphia. Yissely is a graduate of Hostos and will be studying at Hunter College in the fall of 2009.
