Olivia (she/her) is a graduate student completing her MA in English Literature at the University of British Columbia. Working at the intersection of critical disability studies and Asian transpacific studies, her thesis explores how understandings of disability and debility impact frameworks of redress in contemporary Asian transpacific literature. Her current and past community projects center around anti-racism education and Asian diasporic community building, most recently working with organizations like the UBC Equity & Inclusion Office, the UBC Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies (ACAM) program, and the hua foundation. She is currently the Special Project Coordinator at the UBC ACAM.

Olivia is grateful to be living on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and sʔəl̀ilwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) nations as a settler of Chinese Filipino and European ancestry.
