Today we’re highlighting the third of five #MatchMade Scholarship Contest finalists –Olivia! Olivia attends Newton North High School in Newton, MA, just outside of Boston. She lives with her new sister Lucia and her two moms, Amy and Oona!
Olivia’s video showcases her two moms and how they found each other on Match - with only three days left until her subscription ended, Olivia’s stepmom found her future wife, and a new family, just in time.
Q&A with Olivia
What inspired you to create your MatchMade video?
My moms were fortunate enough to discover each other. I felt I should share their story because I can’t imagine our family not being together.
How will the scholarship help you meet your goals?
It will ensure that I am able to afford to go to college and eventually pursue a career in environmental engineering.
How did your parents meet on the site?
My stepmom was ready to give up on love. When she saw my mom’s profile, and how much they had in common, she reached out to her immediately.
Tell us about your parents’ first date.
They went to a local restaurant and both felt there was never a pause in their conversation, and that they “immediately connected.”
How has Match.com changed your family’s life?
We’ve all found people to love for the rest of our lives. I have the sibling I’ve always wanted, my sister has someone to look up to and my parents no longer feel lonely.
