Duke University junior Olivia Falchi Simpson, a Sociology major, is a North Carolina native. She came to Duke as a public policy major, but says she’s “become more interested in quantifying stories and in learning how to translate people’s experiences into empathetic policy.”
A B.N. Duke Scholar, Olivia volunteers with the Community Empowerment Fund and works with a Bass Connections team finding avenues for civic engagement.
On the latest episode of The Political Student, Olivia shares why and how she engages politically.
