Lily is passionate about getting kids involved in STEAM, and initiatives that empower young people to pursue their passion. She uses her art to connect with kids, explaining the physics behind dominoes, and showing them how dominoes can help develop important life-skills, including patience, perseverance, and creative problem solving. She also actively promotes inclusivity and equality.
