The Blueprint

Olivia Simpson
Grade

12

After highschool…

I would like to go to an urban college (in Chicago, New York, Washington D.C., etc.) and major in law. The end goal is to become a public defender, but we’ll see. 

What I Do

I am honored to be co-editor-in-chief this year. I also run the Blueprint and the @humans.of.mariemont Instagram page.

I kind of overextend myself. I am in charge of Cappies, founder of Mariemont Awareness and Activist Club, member of National Honors Society, Service Projects Abroad, Key Club, World Affairs Club, Mariemont Girls United, and Environmental Club. I also play lacrosse and tennis.

Why Blueprint

I joined the Blueprint my sophomore year because I thought I wanted to be a journalist. Now my choice in career has changed, but I have stuck with journalism and the Blueprint because I enjoy “being in the known” and writing stories that can change people's lives. 

Interesting Fact

I’ve run 2 half-marathons. 

Best Advice

Do the things that scare you.
