Heyyyyy. Im Olivia. My story is different from most….this is my first year at SCAD, however I am 22 years old. I graduated high school in 08′ and went to Georgia Southern University. I honestly had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and figured I would take the route my parents mapped out for me and began working towards a Business Marketing degree at Southern. I went to that school for 3 miserable years searching for a future that was the opposite of the path I was currently on. The time I spent there (which was far far too long -_-) may seem like a complete waste to most people, but it was those hard days of soul searching and dreaming that led me to where I am. Finding yourself is never an easy process and for some it takes longer than others (me obviously being that case), however when I realized that my creative side was dying I knew I needed to do something to light that fire again even if it meant leaving behind/loosing money, time, friends, parents wishes, and an internship. I have always loved acting..I was in theater at Georgia Southern, trained at The Company Acting Studio in Atlanta,Ga, and have been singed with Click Models in Atlanta and Elite in New York since I was 15 years old….but I never realized how strong my passion was for it until I allowed it to be acceptable to myself even if it wasn’t acceptable to my parents. Shortly after coming to this realization I applied to SCAD to hopefully study in their Film and Television program, and got accepted. Due to the fact that marketing doesn’t exactly have much to do with most of the classes students take at SCAD, I only had 45 credits transfer out of 97. It sucks, but my philosophy is that it is NEVER too late to follow your dream, so here I am as focused as I’ll ever be with a drive that could kill. I encourage every else to always follow their dreams, although I think most of the people at SCAD already are .
