Kendra Olson

Kendra Olson, senior, is thrilled to be part of The OLu Muse as Design Editor! When she’s not writing, she loves theatre, playing music, watching movies, and traveling. Growing up outside the U.S. taught her the power of perspective and she continually strives to weave that into her storytelling. Above all, she believes that God gave everyone a voice and only hopes to do good with hers. Kendra’s favorite literary quote is from Pierce Brown: “In the face of cold power, she is fire.”
