Hey North! This week our featured student leader is… Raya!
Raya is the Equity Board Coordinator and joined student leadership to help promote EDI (equity, diversity, and inclusion) in her community. She strives to help others and to make North as safe and equitable an environment for all people. Raya is most proud of her work in hosting equitable events around campus, making policy changes, as well as the advocacy projects she works on in the Equity and Welcome Center. Raya’s favorite thing about North Seattle College is the leaves that grow on the buildings, and watching them change color as the seasons change. Her favorite spot in Seattle is Carkeek Park and something that makes Raya unique is her love for stickers (especially the multidimensional ones that you can squish; I didn’t even know that was a thing!). Things that motivate Raya include Alexandria Ocsasio Cortez and rabbits. When Raya graduates from North Seattle, she plans to transfer to a 4-year university.
Thank you for making this school a place that’s open to all! Come by the Student Leadership office (CC1446, across from the Grove) to say hi!
