Olivia A. Klevorn is a senior at Yale, where she majors in anthropology. Active in the performing arts, she directs the Heritage Theatre Ensemble, which presents the works of black artists, and is president of WORD, a student-run poetry association.

Much of her academic work is focused on the problem of disinvestment in low-income minority communities and the resultant inequality in home ownership.
