Ly graduated from Cal State Los Angeles with a B.A. in child development and a multiple subjects teaching credential. She taught Kindergarten for two and a half years in a private school before moving to Korea to become an English teacher. Although she enjoyed her time as an English teacher, she was thrilled to resume her teaching career in the United States.
During her free time, Ly likes to travel around the world and to learn of and explore all diversity it has to offer. Her next vacation destinations are England, Greece, and India.
