About Me 

Hello and welcome! I'm Olivia and this is my blogging home. 

Raised in Chicago by my Turkish grandmother, I spent my childhood traveling between Europe and the States before settling in Switzerland at the age of nineteen. Studying at a Lycée Français, I developed a love of language and literature as a small child and I've devoted much of my life since then to its study. I have a BA in English & Comparative Literature and I'm currently pursuing my graduate studies at the University of Geneva. When I don't have my nose buried in books, you can find me drinking coffee with my Westie, hanging out around Medievalists, or zipping around Switzerland on very timely trains with my fiancé.
