About Olivia

Olivia ShawHi everyone! My name is Liv and I graduated in May, 2020 from Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work. During my senior capstone, I began studying more intently how a country’s culture can implicate their existing child welfare system and how they approach child work.

Come January, I’ll be moving to Cape Town, South Africa to work in a township called Woodstock. There, I’ll be working in a group home for immigrant and refugee children. I’m so excited to begin this work and find a deeper understanding of what day to day work will look like, and I hope that you will follow along with me as I process it!
