A creative writing major and an art & design minor, Ollie is comfortable writing in multiple genres, including literary criticism. In all of her classes, Ollie is dedicated to her craft, and her creative work is a testament to her efforts. Her senior capstone project, a novel excerpt titled, Wolf's Bane: An Exploration of Siblinghood and Human Nature, is a witty and darkly humorous dive into family dynamics and rivalry. She was also the recipient of the Irving Story Scholarship Award for Excellence in English."
