Olivia Bardo is a senior English major with minors in Politics and Gender Studies at Messiah University. She realized her calling to pursue social justice while reading the works of Edwidge Danticat. Since then she has sought to equalize spaces through arts and humanities. Her works appear in The Porch, The American Academy of Poets, Meniscus Journal, and elsewhere. She grew up with infusions of nondenominational and Baptist traditions and is now in the process of deconstructing her faith. She resides in northeastern Pennsylvania.
