a chat with olivia

Q: Can you please introduce yourself?


I’m Olivia and I play Character #3 and Howey Ou. I’m in grade 10 and I live in Ottawa.


Q: What does being in 12 mean to you?


It means so much to me. I can’t imagine not being in 12, or at least not being a part of it in some way. It means to me that I’m actually doing something. We’re creating art that’s impactful.


Q: What’s your part of the natural world?


Definitely moss. I love how like squishy and fluffy it is. And it’s always a nice shade of green


Q: What’s a specific climate change worry of yours?


That none of the little, everyday things that I do actually makes a difference. Does me recycling even do anything?


Q: What would you like to ask someone about Climate Change?


I’d probably ask my parents “Do you think that 12 is actually making a difference?”


Q: When the audience leaves 12, you hope they will ..


I hope they will have heard a line that really spoke to them. And that they’ll think about that line for a long time. Even if it’s just as simple as “I do, what a strange promise to make the person you love”


Q: What is your favourite word?

pearl
