About Olivia Evans

A proud native of San Francisco, Olivia Evans graduated from Dartmouth College in 2014 with a B.A. in Romance Languages and minor in International Studies. Passionate about languages as a means for cross-cultural communication and understanding, particularly in an international development context, Olivia speaks French, Spanish, and Italian and is excited to get started on her fifth language, Swahili, with DHE. Olivia was able to put these languages to the test when she worked for the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization in Rome for her junior year. At UN FAO, Olivia worked as a Communications Intern authoring stories for the Ending Hunger campaign, writing speeches, and getting to meet some of her biggest her role-models. After Rome, Olivia went on to work for the UN FAO again her junior summer in Washington D.C. There, she was part of a 3-person team that organized World Food Day events across the United States, pitched stories that ended up in the New York Times, Forbes, and the Huffington Post, and coordinated an essay series with 43 of the foremost thought leaders in food security. After graduation, Olivia will be working for the top global communications firm, Ogilvy & Mather, in New York City. She is thrilled to be joining the DHE team this summer in Tanzania, where she will be conducting impact analysis through a variety of storytelling means - written and video.
