Olivia Lee

Though she would rather be somewhere on a beach in California, Olivia Lee is stuck here in Jacksonville, IL for now, racing to get through her final year of high school. She has somehow managed to jam pack her schedule full of various AP classes, volunteering, and extracurriculars. In her minimal free time, you may be able to track Olivia down at the Soap Co. Coffee House or passed out in bed after a long day of activities. If the term “you are what you eat” was literal, then Olivia would most likely be a mixed pile of Dairy Queen chicken strips, fruit snacks, and Taco Bell quesadillas. As long as there’s food in her belly, Olivia is a happy camper. However, more often you may catch Olivia crying about pathetic things such as the end of summer or super cute pictures of puppies.  Olivia is also an avid “puzzler”… if that’s even a word. She has mastered the game of Sudoku and has even downloaded several jigsaw puzzle apps on her phone. Olivia also enjoys impressing all of her friends with her crazy art skills and hopes that some of her creativity will rub off in her writing this year as a third year Crimson J staff writer.
