Olivia Light

Student at the University of California, Los Angeles

 As a first generation, low-income college student, Olivia would not have been able to attend college without financial aid. Although she is extremely grateful for the financial support, she has encountered a number of barriers that she believes once properly addressed, will do more to close the equity gap within the education system. She hopes that through her advocacy work she will be able to bring about positive changes for the higher education system for the neediest students.
