We are delighted to have Lilly Lee join the Fish Team!
Lilly is currently a Portland Community College student who will transfer to Portland State University in the fall. She’s majoring in International Studies and Early Education.
Lilly is a Carpe Mundi scholarship recipient. Completing an internship in the Portland community is part of the scholarship requirement – we’re grateful she chose us!
Another aspect of her scholarship includes traveling abroad. Lilly just spent the last several months living in Central America.
Carpe Mundi provides mentorship and scholarship for first generation college students. It focuses on creating significant and sustainable social changes within the greater Portland community, as well as increasing global awareness and empathy.
Lilly’s internship was arranged through Worksystems’ SummerWorks youth employment program. Worksystems is a local non-profit that helps place youth in great summer jobs throughout the city.
