Lily is a recent graduate of Northwestern University, where she received a degree in American Studies and Journalism. A product of Mamaroneck and New York’s public schools, Lilly developed close relationships with her teachers and a deep appreciation for learning in all forms. Her love of school only grew during her time in college, and she is excited that she gets to return to the classroom this year. From working as a summer camp counselor for most of college to serving as a Peer Advisor at Northwestern and a high school health instructor in Chicago, Lily discovered how rewarding it is to work with teens in a mentorship capacity. Lily feels that education, in all forms, is a key to building students’ confidence in taking on the world, and can’t imagine a better program than Blue Engine through which to do that. While she has found that the bagels in Chicago are perfectly fine, she’s thrilled to be able to return to New York, and can’t wait to join the Blue Engine team.
