Meet an SMA: Olivia Cucinotta’18
The Thrill spotlights a Sexual Misconduct Advisor regularly to raise awareness about the resources available to survivors of sexual assault. Remember, the SMAs are subordinate to the Counseling Center, so anything you tell them is kept confidential. They also have an anonymous hotline you can call if you need assistance: 740-358-1544. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help. Today, we’re featuring Olivia Cucinotta from New York City.
Best meal you’ve ever had?
Pasta, tomatoes, basil, and brie all mixed together in the brie gets all melty and wonderful. My mom taught me how to make it over the summer. It’s become a big part of my life ever since.
Last good book you read?
I recently read Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. It’s the first graphic novel in a while but I found it wonderful and honest.
Why do you love Kenyon?
The longer I’m at Kenyon the more permission I give myself to take risks and do the things I’m afraid of. I really appreciate those opportunities.
What’s the best part of your hometown?
I’m from Brooklyn, and I love that I can take the subway anywhere I need to go (especially good because I don’t know how to drive yet.)
Where’s the best napping place on campus?
Anywhere if you try hard enough and belief in yourself.
What movie have you watched most frequently?
The Nightmare Before Christmas. Because I’m spooky.
Why did you become an SMA?
I want to be there to support people-to help empower those who might be feeling powerless.
