Lily is passionate about education, equality, and individuality. She has been an advocate for student’s rights, taking part of campaigning for her local school’s levy and helping protest with March For Our Lives. She believes equal education should be valued and accessible to everyone. Her goals for the year are to grow as a person and teacher, and hopefully foster many meaningful relationships with who she meets along the way. Lily is inspired by her friends and the people around her, she believes that she is who she is because of what she has learned from them. She says, “ The best way to learn & grow is to be like a sponge and absorb the experiences of others to take with you wherever you may go next. I am excited to do this in India with Global Citizen Year.”
