about the author: olivia penn, 22
I’m Olivia, a 22-year-old sociology graduate with a passion for making the world a better place. I spend my time between my hometown of Winchester and my long-distance boyfriend's hometown of Long Beach, CA.
I love travelling and spent a semester abroad last year studying at the University of Wollongong in Australia. It was the best experience I have ever had.
I spend a lot of my time trying to live as ethical and sustainable a life as possible. I’ve been a vegan for almost 5 years (the non-judgmental kind!) and I make a considerable effort to avoid buying fast fashion. I always try to consider the effects that my consumption has on people and the environment.
In my free time I’m enjoying learning Spanish (albeit slowly) and I particularly love listening to my favourite artist of all time, The Weeknd.
