Rising Star: Catherine Lily Thomas

Catherine Lily Thomas is a young artist and rising runway model. At age 18, she’s 5’10” exceptionally tall as a lifetime ballerina. Her passion is to pursue psychiatry to help people with mental distress. As an activist for climate change and sustainability, she produced her first documentary while attending summer school at Stanford University in 2022.  I met her at a conference in Napa when she was only 12 years old and did an impromptu photoshoot (her first one). Over the years, I’ve seen her blossom into a young woman.
