Current Studies and Future Goals
When asked what she found most meaningful about her studies at Tufts, Olivia responded “Studying anthropology and environmental studies has been a great way to understand and contextualize environmental issues through the local populations most affected; how sustainability can practically function in local settings given broader, global models of sustainability and conservation. I appreciate how my education here at Tufts has provided both specific and general lenses to examine environmental issues.”
Once completing her studies at Tufts, Olivia hopes to pursue a career in Environmental Law
When not doing school work, Olivia can be found editing Tufts’ Currents Magazine or Rock Climbing.
