When Olivia Kalb ‘14 finds a spare moment, she cannot help but spend the time reading an enjoyable book. Although Kalb’s schedule has been booked tight lately college essays and the beginning of senior year, she still makes reading a priority in her life.

“I don’t really have a favorite [book] since I’m always finding new ones I adore, but my favorite genre is romance,” Kalb said. “I love falling into a story as I’m reading.”

However, in addition to adoring books, Kalb also enjoys writing short stories and creative nonfiction. She is very is cognizant of her surroundings, causing her to always be creating dialogues, characters, and stories in her head as she walks through the halls of Staples.

Kalb’s passion for writing was the reason she joined Inklings her junior year. However once part of the newspaper staff, she realized she was able to combine her love of reading and writing. Specifically, last May, after Kalb finished reading a novel, she in return wrote a review on it for Inklings.

Kalb will continue to read and write as she feels it is putting her on the path to success in life. “I have my whole life planned out,” Kalb said. “I want to be an editor for a New York Publisher.” While this may seem like a big dream, Kalb knows that Inklings is teaching her all the right skills for that lifestyle.
