Sara Dalpe Sánchez is fourth year currently living in Morristown, New Jersey, but originally from Málaga, Spain.

This is her fourth year on VICS Secretariat: she started her VICS career as a Secretariat staffer for VICS XX, then as Under-Secretary General for Media & Design for VICS XXI, and then as Under-Secretary General for External Relations for VICS XXII last year. She is beyond excited to be Secretary General of VICS XXIII! You can contact Sara at vicssg@gmail.com.
