Congratulations to Interlake Freshman Zitao Li, who advanced to the 9th annual YEA! Saunders Scholars National Semifinals College Scholarship competition May 4-6 in Rochester, New York!
Li pitched her business Roses and Rita, an easy-to-use online stylish apparel store for teenagers at the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce YEA! investor panel pitch event on April 19.
