Olivia Payne is a senior, third-year staff, and Editor-in-Chief for Achona. She has a passion for art and writing. She would love to major in journalism or creative writing in college, and she is counting down the days until graduation.

At one point, she was doing was doing both dance and gymnastics before switching full-time to dance. If there is one thing Olivia loves, it’s Starbucks. When fall is in season, she loves a good pumpkin spice latte. But when the season ends, she switches things up to either a pink drink or an iced white mocha with sweet cold foam. She is a big fan of Chili’s, especially their cookies and Shirley Temples. Her main accessory at school is her navy blue 40oz Stanley cup that must go everywhere. More fun facts about Olivia are that her favorite musical artist is Hozier and she has a pet bearded dragon, Jasper.
