Olivia believes there is power in being courageous, even if your faith is as small as a mustard seed. “Courage has been a word I have chosen to live by for many years. Coming to Missouri State, I knew I wanted to make a difference, impact people, and celebrate the value of individuals. Through this desire, I have been involved with 8 on campus organizations, three off campus organizations, and this summer I took a courageous step and decided to @mostatestudyaway in Italy! A huge area of growth I gained while abroad was learning more about how to be culturally competent. I had to learn to break a language barrier during communication, and travel across the globe with people I had never met. Coming back to campus, I realized this experience taught me how to truly value other cultures, and stirred my heart to gain more knowledge about cultures that are not familiar to me. I want to live out the Public Affairs mission by being culturally competent!”
Last night Liv was a ⭐️ at Rockstar, and Sigma Kappa is so proud to call her our Queen!
“Last night was the MOST fun! Win, or lose, I got to represent my favorite women as I preformed in front of my University. Because of @sigmakappamsu, so many dreams of my heart have been accomplished, and I am beyond proud to be apart of such a kind, supportive, and selfless group of women. Since I began my Sigma Kappa journey in 2015, I have held 4 leadership positions, met my future bridesmaids, and have had the most fun of my whole life. These women have made me a better Liv & what and honor it is to represent them. To the women of Sigma Kappa, you are world changers!”

Liv’s greatest passions are people and service. She has completed 120+ service hours within her community, and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon! As she searched for an organization to continue her service, she came across the national nonprofit, Miss Amazing. This program provides an opportunity for girls and women with disabilities to build self confidence in a supportive environment. “This organization has been one of my life’s biggest blessings, and spending time with these ladies has brought me the most joy! I am thankful for this organization, and its heart to celebrate the abilities of girls and women with disabilities.” After spending this past summer as the Director of Buddies for Miss Amazing, Liv is ready to spend her fall break advocating for this organization at a preliminary pageant to Miss Missouri!
Liv knows that at a University with over 26,000+ college students, over 300 student organizations to find involvement, classes, internships, jobs, and personal social lives - life can get overwhelming. On this Tuesday, Liv reminds us to choose joy. “Sometimes we need to laugh, find joy in the small things, and take a moment to stop taking life too seriously. College has hands down been the busiest time of my life, and I am sure it has been for you too! As we embrace the crazy, don’t forget to grab your favorite iced coffee, call your mom, laugh with your best friend, and eat waffle fries from Chick-fil-a! Let’s choose joy, y’all!”
Liv wishes you a Happy Motivational Monday!
You are BRILLIANT. You are STRONG. You are EMPOWERING. You are PRODUCTIVE. You are INSPIRING. You deserve to be CELEBRATED this Monday!!!
