Hi, my name is Lily Ljiljanich! I’m honored to be New York’s Youth Advocacy Board Member. I attend Tonawanda High School in Tonawanda; which is right between Buffalo and Niagara Falls. I play basketball and run varsity track at my school. My competitive soccer career has taken me all over the country, and I’ve met many people too. To give back to the sport, I referee for various local youth soccer clubs. In the winter I enjoy spending time skiing with my family in the southern tier.

I am serious about giving maximum effort on the court, track and pitch and especially in the classroom. I am a member of Youth Court and have been on the honor roll every marking period. My hobbies include writing, art, and photography. My goal is to play soccer at a Division I college and pursue my dream of attending law school. I am excited to serve as New York State’s YAB Member!
