Olivia Thurman


Olivia grew up in Houston, Texas with her parents and two younger brothers. Previous to the internship, she studied English with a focus in literature at Texas A&M University. RUF was a part of her life throughout her time at A&M, and she is delighted to further be a part of the community. In her free time, Olivia enjoys writing, singing, listening to music, reading, and traveling to and exploring new places whenever she can. She values pursuing relationships with the people in her life, allowing her to learn more about both them and herself and enabling her to better understand the purpose and blessing of fellowship.
