While reading Olivia Yao’s resume, one expects to meet someone in her mid to late 20’s based on accomplishments she has amassed so far. On a weekly basis, this high-school senior dedicates 30 + hours to activities which include robotics, symphony practice, presenting at conferences, collaborating with Ice Theatre of New York, and coaching Essex Special Skaters. Beginning her figure skating journey at 4 years old with the Essex Learn to Skate program, she excelled so rapidly, that she passed basic skill 1 to FS 2 in one year. By the age of 8, she had completed Senior Moves in the Field. Olivia is among one of the youngest in the US to achieve this. Not surprisingly, she is a double gold medalist in both disciplines.
