A journalism major at Cal State Dominguez Hills, Lily hopes to reach her dream job as a boxing commentator. She grew up in Mexico watching boxing with her father, and looking up to exciting Mexican legends like Erik Morales, Juan Manuel Marquez, Marco Antonio Barrera, Travieso Arce, El Maromero, and of course, JCC senior and Oscar De La Hoya. Her love of boxing intensified when her family migrated to the US in 2001 and world boxing became more accessible. Apart from her love of boxing, she loves to be involved in many feminist activism and plans to use her journalism career to raise awareness on environmental issues as well as social injustices against people of color and minorities.
