Rebecca Speer is a junior at Upper St. Clair High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She hopes to pursue a career in Environmental Law. She especially hopes to pursue the issue of water quality after listening to a presentation on wetlands and their impact on the water quality and speaking with her district congressman’s and state senator’s views on the issue of water quality within her hometown. She enjoys playing lacrosse, acting, and performing in her high school band in her free time. She is very excited to be on the Youth Advisory Board for WYSE 2018 and hopes to make the next generation of WYSE delegates experience as wonderful as her own! She urges students to participate in the summit not only for the wonderful experience it gives to students who are passionate about environmental issues but also for the opportunity to meet wonderful people from different parts of the United States!
