My name is Lili Siri Spira.

My middle name, Siri, means "sweet victory" in Swedish. Siri is not only a voice on your iPhone it was also the name of my great-great-grandmother.

Siri came to the United States from Sweden as a teenager alongside her sisters. She was an adventurous soul, yearning for more than the life her status as a woman and immigrant restricted her to. After her husband moved the family out to Montana, she grew restless, eventually leaving her family to join the women's suffrage movement.

Just like her, my passion and drive lie with whatever I'm doing -- always involved, always dedicated. I'm always working hard to achieve those "sweet victories".
