Hi! My name is Olivia.
In 2006 I was born in Atlanta to two immigrant parents and have been raised in the suburbs of Lithonia, Georgia. Growing up near the bustling cultural center of Atlanta has provided me with a launchpad to develop my various interests. I have attended Chamblee High School in Dekalb County since 2019, learning and developing passions I have carried since my youth, specifically visual arts, politics and writing.
This past school year, I have particularly enjoyed helping lead my peers in the publication of Etcetera, Chamblee’s literary magazine, as Associate Editor-in-Chief. As I enter my final year of high school, I look forward to serving as Vice President of Chamblee’s Women’s Political Club, President of our school’s chapter of national volunteering organization “Do Something” and continuing my participation in National Art Honor Society. During this experience, I hope to bring what I have learned about publishing, communication and effective collaboration to our group to help produce an amazing website while learning from both our instructors and my talented peers. My goals for this experience are to understand more about the style of writing required in journalism, how to conduct a thorough interview and to further explore my interests with my articles.
Inside school, I can be found stressing over my classes or trying to decide whether I would like to be a political reporter or go into marketing. Outside of school, you can find me painting, buying too many plants to count, or being the last person alive who watches C-SPAN.
