Editorial Intern — Fall 2015
Olivia is a junior at Presbyterian College in Clinton, SC where she is editor of the BlueStocking student newspaper. She is majoring in English and minoring in Media Studies and Creative Writing.
While interning at Street Sense this semester, she is also enrolled in American University’s Washington Semester program for Journalism and New Media. She has also been a researcher for the Textile Mill Memory Project, a Mellon Grant-funded project for which she has conducted oral histories with former workers from Clinton’s now-closed textile mills. After observing impoverished rural communities all her life, Olivia is eager to write about similar issues in an urban area.
