Olivia Sui Facts
- She doesn’t like to be called ‘sweetie.’

- In the 4th grade, Olivia invited a girl to her house to play with her new doll and was very excited about it. After playing for a while, the girl pooped on her carpet, and got up, laughed, and left. She only noticed the stain after the girl was gone, and didn’t tell her parents out of embarrassment.
- She stated she was bullied in high school for being “too out there” and “confident.”
- If she didn’t become an actress and social media star, she would have pursued teaching.
