Spencer Lively studies political science and French at the University of Washington. They’re excited to serve the 130,000 Washington students by connecting the WSA to other media outlets and increasing the transparency and tangibility of our organization. Being a queer person from Mount Vernon was tough because they were naturally drawn to social justice and were unable to find outlets for this passion within the apolitical Skagit County. However, the opportunity to attend the University of Washington has provided them the possibility of fighting for a better future for everyone - which relies on affordable & equitable access to a high-quality level of higher education for everyone. When they’re not organizing, you can find them singing in the University Chorale, Recital Choir, and a wedding chamber group.
