Going through high school came with its influential figures. Olivia describes Mrs. Lucas as someone who always believed in her. Mrs. Lucas encouraged her to better and achieve it. Olivia also told of the good influence from her grandma. “She’s always been here for me and wanted to see me succeed. She’s my rock,” Olivia explained.
However, looking back at highschool years leaves some things to be desired. “I’d definitely try to apply myself more in classes and not worry about so many things I used to worry myself with,” Olivia explained. To all the freshmen in years to come, she gives the advice of not letting others tell you what you can and can’t do. “If you put your mind to it, you can achieve it,” she adds.
