Camila Vallejo

Vice president of the University of Chile Student Federation. From late 2010 through 2011, she was president of the organization and has been a main spokesperson for the national student federation, the Confederation of Chilean Students. Vallejo is also a member of the Central Committee of the Chilean Communist Youth and a geography student at the Universidad de Chile in Santiago. In 2011, she was included in Time magazine’s “100 People Who Mattered” and also named as “Time Person of the Year” in its annual issue, which honored “the protester.” Likewise, readers of The Guardian chose her as their “Person of the Year,” and Chileans elected her “Person of the Year” in their poll. And, in 2012, Newsweek/Daily Beast included Camila Vallejo in its list of “150 Fearless Women.”
