Lily Zhou is the living proof that the American Dream is alive and well.
She was born and raised in China. Seeking a better life and the freedom of the United States, Lily legally immigrated to the United States with no money and not speaking a word of English. Using her work ethic, she became a serial entrepreneur. Her record includes successfully starting and selling three businesses.
Lily has also worked internationally with former heads of state and was an active planning committee member of the Kyoto Prize Symposium, known as the second to the Nobel Prize. She has authored a book and spoken at numerous conferences around the world including the Global Women Economic Forum and raised money for many charities. In 2009, Lily has received awards for international work including helping 41 teachers, parents, and students “quarantined” by the Chinese government safely return home.
Her career also includes teaching global business and management at the San Diego State University. This work has grown her passion for improving education and opportunities for the next generation.
Presently, she is the community director for the San Diego Family Circle Adult Day Health Center as well as a real estate broker in the San Diego area where she is seeing many families flee the state due to high taxation and over regulation. Her goal is to pay it forward by restoring people’s faith in the American Dream and our democracy.
As our next U.S. Senator, Lily will work to implement a Flat Tax to make our tax code fair and affordable.
The next generation must be prepared to compete in the new global marketplace. As the next U.S. Senator, Lily will work to improve education by giving parents and children more choices and requiring merit based tenure for teachers.
Having extensive business experience, Lily knows first hand how regulations stifle economic growth. She will work to make our federal government once again small business friendly.
Lily strongly believes that being elected to office should not be a way to enrich oneself. She will work to clean up Congress and bring back unity to our nation.
