Olivia Spina '20

Being around a diverse set of personalities makes school fun.

What clubs, organizations, sports, service projects, etc. are you involved in?

Sophomore Board, Junior Board, ASB, Campus Ministry Leadership Team, stage crew, and journalism

What is your favorite spot on campus and why?

Honestly, it's a tie between Room 20 and the library. If I sit there long enough, I'm bound to run into my favorite people.

What is your career aspiration?

I want to teach for a while, but that's not my "aspiration" per se. It's really just me buying myself time to travel. There's nothing like a summer vacation.

What's your proudest accomplishment so far?

Academically, my Junior Research Project. It was so tough, yet so worth it.

What three words describe you?

outspoken, stubborn, and always sarcastic

What's your favorite class at Flintridge Sacred Heart and why?

I've taken too many good classes to just pick one. So, here are my top 3 (in no particular order): English II with Mr. Eisenstein, AP Environmental Science with Schnieds, and Principles of Engineering with Mr. Buxman.

What do you love about Flintridge Sacred Heart?

I didn't know it until I saw it coming to an abrupt end during my senior year, but I truly love the people at Flintridge Sacred Heart. I've yet to pinpoint specifically what it is that causes this phenomenon, but people here seem to love being themselves. Being around a diverse set of personalities makes school fun.

What advice do you have for someone applying to Flintridge Sacred Heart?

Seriously, if you even think that you might want to try something even the slightest bit... I'm begging you.... please go for it. High school -- especially at Flintridge Sacred Heart -- is the best place to try everything. Not to get preachy, but binding yourself to an activity just for the sake of proving commitment to a sport or art or job for college is not worth it. If you're not having fun, then stop doing it and find something new that you actually have fun doing.

What do you do for fun?

Play the Sims. That's all. Just kidding, I like to hang out with my friends like everyone else.
