Meet our Team: Olive Persimmon

Olive 3Meet our newest NYC Team Member: The fantastically monikered Olive Persimmon!

– What do is your role at The Engaging Educator? I am a facilitator, engager, and most importantly someone tying to empower people to find their voices.

-Where are you from and how did you make it to NYC? I’m from the great state of Ohio (the heart of it all!). I wanted to be around talented people who were creating things, so I knew NYC was the right place for me. I loved the chaos and the energy.

-When did you first start to love Improv? I’ve been doing public speaking for ten years. It’s my hobby and passion. I got in to improv to improve my impromptu speaking ability and fell in love because…well…it’s super fun.

-What is something you want to Improv(e) on? My cooking skills are atrocious. Truly,I can barely make eggs.

-Where is your favorite place in the city? I’m in love with the Met. I never had an interest in art until I went on a Museum Hack tour. It totally changed my perspective. Now I can give a decent tour of the Met myself.

-What’s a not-so-secret skill you have? I love creating things with words (speeches, books,etc). Recently though I’ve been really in to spoken word poetry.

“AaahhhOOOgah” makes me feel happy!

“Yes, and” to running, reading, and performing
