Olivia Griffin can’t wait to use the “but...I’m a Senior!” excuse as the answer to all of life’s problems. As far as college next year, she will probably be attending a school that involves wearing a gaudy amount of burnt orange or maroon, where she will study Biomedical Sciences and Anthropology, and continue to ride in equestrian competitions. While everyone believes that their dog is the best, Olivia truly does own the best dog in the world, a rescue named Henry. When she grows up, she wants to be Kate Middleton. She can be found in her spare time contemplating the meaning of the movie "Donnie Darko", and uses the book "What Would Audrey Hepburn Do?" as her guide to life. She is a polyglot and speaks English (duh), Spanish, and French, and can often be found eavesdropping on unsuspecting foreigners' conversations. Oh, and she doesn’t like bacon.
