- One word to describe her Networking Academy experience: Evolution
Lily is a Networking Academy instructor because she wants to share her experience with a new generation of students. The Networking Academy, she says, is “very important” in finding good jobs in Mexico — and teaching lets her “change lives.”
She sees it time and again. Lily recalls one student who could barely afford her classes, but still persisted. Now, he’s working at a senior level at a factory in Mexico. She pushes her students and wants to see them all succeed, because once they finish with their education, “they can improve themselves.”
