Olivia Guy

Class of 2020

Western University

Growing up with her mother’s stories about Boarding at Havergal (Class of 1986), Olivia was excited to experience it for herself. “I will never forget move-in day: I was greeted by a group of friendly students who carried my bags to my room, helped me unpack and gave me advice about what teams and clubs to join,” she recalls. During her time in the Senior School, she was involved in rowing and took on various leadership positions. On weekends, she was a competitive alpine ski racer and coach, a passion of hers that taught her time management skills. In addition to taking math, science and business courses, Olivia also took subjects such as Kinesiology, French and World Issues as she wanted to experience the wide variety of courses and teaching styles offered at Havergal. Since graduation, she has been studying Management & Organizational Studies at Western University, with early entrance to the Ivey School of Business. She’ll never forget her time in Boarding, which taught her about independence and community living. “Being around other girls who are so motivated really inspired me,” she says.
