Since then, she has played for the KAMSA and HopeBox youth orchestra in addition to our own CYS Wind Symphony and Associate Orchestra as the principal flutist. In past summers, Olivia participated in master classes with Dr. Chin-Fei Chan at the C'est Bon Chamber Music Camp, and this year, she was accepted to the Philadelphia International Music Camp and Festival where she will be participating in their Solo Performances Preparation Program. Currently, she studies with Ms. Jooyoun Shin, and plays with the Bello and MUSE ensembles, holding charity concerts to raise funds to help the community in need. On the stage, Olivia recently won the American Protégé Music Competition as well as various local competitions including KAMSA, Silicon Valley Music Competition and US International Open Music Competition. In addition to flute, Olivia practiced piano for 10 years and was invited to play at the MTAC State Convention upon receiving the branch and state honors at the advanced level Certificate of Merit test. 

Outside of music, Olivia is an avid Taekwondo athlete with a second degree black belt. She has won several California State and USAT National Championships in the past, and often volunteers as a junior leader at her studio to promote a healthy body and a positive, resilient mind.
