Hi, my name is Olivia and I am the creator of the online blog La Livi Lou. This is the page you can find out a bit more about me and my blog!
A little about me…
I’m 20 years old and a Politics and International Relations student at Cardiff University. But that’s a bit boring really and not why you came to my “ABOUT” page.
I started this blog when I started university as a way to “waste my time productively”. What I didn’t realise is how much I would fall in love with blogging and the incredible blogging community! LaLiviLou is now my second blog after my first (The Printed Parade) had a few technical issues. Now, nearly two years into blogging I feel I’ve finally found my place in this busy online world.
I’m a huge fan of personal development and a strong advocate for environmental conservation. I want to use my degree and this blog to help me on a mission of humanitarian aid and sustainable development projects. I’ll be writing content aimed at helping you to help our beautiful planet.
I also will be writing about some of the awesome personal development knowledge I have learnt, and how you can learn it too. Personal development has changed my life (blimey didn’t take long for a cliche to appear), I have struggled with anxiety for a long time and at my worst I was suffering daily panic attacks that were beginning to take over my life. Now, after taking on some serious personal development I’m recovering really well. I still have bumps in my road but I’m getting stronger each day. I like to live life to the full despite the barriers I sometimes face and I want to help others do the same.
WaterAid is a charity I have a lot of passion for and in October I ran 10km for them in Bournemouth Marathon festival with my boyfriend. Never before have I run that far and quite frankly I’m super proud of myself for doing it!
I recently came back from a trip of a lifetime around South East Asia and in another incredibly cliche way, I found what I wanted from my life whilst travelling. I always knew I lived an incredibly privileged life, and after some of the things I was able to do I realised I wanted to devote my life to helping those that aren’t as fortunate as me. Being a human is so much more than just existing. It’s about having humanity and compassion.
In my final year of university, I feel I have so much more clarity in my life. Going into it with a clearer idea has filled me with so much more passion for what I’m doing.
