Daniela Salazar- Judge of the Constitutional Court

January 25, 2021
Jueza Corte Constitucional

“I am a Judge and Vice President of the Constitutional Court of Ecuador, I am also a professor at the USFQ College of Jurisprudence. Without a doubt, what I am most passionate about is teaching. However, when the possibility of competing to be a judge of the Constitutional Court of Ecuador was presented, I decided that it was time to put my knowledge at the service of the country. The Constitutional Court is the highest body for control, constitutional interpretation, and administration of constitutional justice in Ecuador, so its decisions can have a transformative impact. Reaching the highest constitutional magistracy despite my age and gender was a challenge that seemed unattainable, but Colegio Menor taught me that there are no “too high” goals and gave me the tools to open all the closed doors that I would find along the way.  I am part of the first class at Colegio Menor and when the school was founded in 1995, I entered convinced that I did not have certain skills and was not suitable for certain subjects. In my brief stint at school, I had the opportunity to rebuild that version of myself. I learned to be aware of my limitations and privileges, but also to trust myself and to work to make my dreams come true. Today I am who I am thanks to Colegio Menor.”
