The month of October is upon us, and our team at Student Ambassador Exchange would like to recognize a Monitoring Local Coordinator that has consistently made an effort to go above and beyond her efforts to support our exchange students. We are proud to announce Lily as our October Local Coordinator of the Month!
Lily was born and raised in Hangzhou, China.
As a little girl she always had a passion to travel and explore different
countries and cultures. Almost two decades ago, Lily came to Tennessee as an
exchange student. Attracted to the southern hospitality, country music,
beautiful scenery and authentic southern cooking, Lily fell in love with Music
City and has called it home ever since.
Her career started at Opryland Hotel, where
she was hired as an intern. She completed the training program and went on to
become a management associate in one of the largest hotel chains in the
Wanting to gain experience in consumer
lending, Lily worked in the financial lending arena. Thinking that lending and
real estate go hand in hand, Lily went on to become a licensed real estate
agent. Her dream of running her own business has now become a reality!
Besides truly enjoying working with people,
Lily also speaks fluent Mandarin, as well as English of course. She is
currently a Chinese language instructor at two different facilities in
Williamson County. Lily’s heart is to use her skills and knowledge to help
people settle into their new Tennessee home.
Her unique experience in hospitality and finance, coupled with her bilingual skills and her genuine desire to help people, make Lily an outstanding asset to Student Ambassador Exchange. She has enjoyed so much to work with her host family and students. She hopes these unique experiences will be the lifelong joyful memories to many students to come.
