  • In her two years writing for Nicki Swift News, dozens of her articles have hit the viral mark, with many being converted into videos for Nicki Swift's YouTube channel.
  • She has an encyclopedic knowledge of Taylor Swift's hair transformation over the years.
  • As editor of her high school newspaper, Lillian covered red carpet interviews and press conferences at the TriBeCa Film Festival three years in a row. Interviewing the likes of Snoop Dogg, Tim Robbins, and Maggie Gyllenhaal at such a young age, she quickly developed a fervent passion for film and film stars alike.


Lillian first whetted her appetite for entertainment journalism at the prestigious Peter Stuyvesant High School, at which she was the Arts & Entertainment editor for The Spectator – her school newspaper sponsored by The New York Times. After graduating from college, she would go on to craft ad copy and press releases for major fashion brands and designers sold at Saks Fifth Avenue and Barneys New York. Since joining the Nicki Swift writing team in 2020, she has contributed countless, voice-driven breaking news articles.


Lillian earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications.
