Olivia Manna

Major: Voice & Opera Studies
Minor: Journalism

Olivia Manna considers herself a storyteller and strives to move people, whether that’s through performing or writing. “Alongside my desire to change the lives of others through my art, I found out that I can do the same with writing and changing the lives and perspectives of others through the art of journalism and storytelling.”

Manna appreciates the breadth and scope of talent at Purchase and looks for inspiration all around her on campus. It’s one of the reasons she chose to study here. “Where there are interesting people…there are interesting stories to tell and lessons to learn.”

While she would love to sing professionally after college, she wouldn’t turn down an opportunity in the  news field. “I would never want to miss an audience.”
