B-Stock is so excited to welcome Lily Ma to the Engineering team this summer! As a summer teammate, we know Lily will be an incredible asset to the company. Lily is studying Artificial Intelligence at Carnegie Mellon University. Learn a bit more about Lily and see their answers to some questions below.

Q: What are you most excited to learn at B-Stock?

Definitely super excited to experience developing a product from start to finish! I’m also looking forward to learning about my peers and mentors’ past experiences and takeaways in tech.

Q: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? (Or still want to be!)

I wanted to be a doctor as a kid, and I’m still interested in the intersection of biology and CS!

Q: What is one piece of advice you’ve been given that has stuck?

The most effective way to grow is by learning from failures and avoiding repeating them.

Q: Where can people find you after work or school?

I love to run in forest preserves/parks!

Q: What is a hidden talent of yours?

I can cut vegetables super fast! I wanted to be a part-time line chef in high school because of it.

Q: What plays in the background while you work (music genre, podcast, news)?

I honestly can’t work with music most days, but I love some soft pop when I can (send me your playlists!).

Q: Where would you go with unlimited PTO?

I’ve been wanting to visit SE Asia for a while now, and I’d love to backpack in a different country!

Q: What do you do when you’re stuck creatively? How do you get the creative juices flowing?

Being outside in nature is always so refreshing! I especially love walking in forest-y areas.

Q: What’s something you’ve accomplished that you’re proud of?

I ran two half marathons in the past few years!

Q: What is one thing you hope to contribute to B-Stock?

I’m hoping to contribute new insights into company practices and the code as a fresh set of eyes. I’d also like to add to the positive and compassionate culture here!
