Lilly Macaruso brought us to the Rebelle Rally 2021 to be a part of the support staff in the mechanics pit where we got to spend every literal second together for over 10 days. We got to know one another real quick.

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.”
I was in one of the 2 R1T’s that were the first ever EV’s to drive Black Bear Pass in Colorado.
I don’t have a big why, but what I can say is it feels like a cosmic opportunity. It’s a culmination of right place, right time, right opportunity.
I think what inspires and excites me most is the possibility that from one day to the next you can have an experience, or meet someone new that can change the entire course of your life.

My greatest adventure to date has most definitely been this past year training for the Rebelle.
I love nature, food, travelling, sports, and music. Chill.

“Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you?”
I hiked to the top of Yosemite Falls when I was 9 years old.
Rivian has given its employees this unique and amazing opportunity to have the chance to compete and I am so grateful to be a part of this experience. I think timing has a lot to do with it. After entering prototypes and pre-production trucks into the two previous years, they’re putting full production trucks into the competition this year, and who better to showcase them and represent the company than their own employees.
Nature’s resilience is awe inspiring.

In Iceland, I hiked up an erupting volcano, saw the cauldron and watched the lava flowing out of it one day and then the next, hiked up one of the largest glaciers in Europe.
