Fresh from being nominated for BBC’s Sound of 2024 and The BRIT Awards, Olivia Dean joined DHL FAST-TRACK against the stunning backdrop of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil!

In between sold-out tours of North America and Europe, DHL joined Olivia in Rio de Janeiro - a city with a special place in her heart. Olivia reunited with friends from Vivendo Um Sonho Surf (VUSS), a local surf school in Rio's Rocinha favela, and sang for a group of lucky fans at an intimate performance.

Both Olivia and DHL have a shared love for the Brazilian surf community, with DHL proudly partnering with local NGO, SOBRASA, since 2021. Olivia spent time with the children of Vivendo Um Sonho Surf (VUSS) whilst visiting, and to ensure the continuation of the great work that VUSS does, DHL and Olivia donated much-needed equipment to the school including rash vests, beach umbrellas, and a surfboard trolley.

DHL were proud to support Olivia and the work she does with VUSS, allowing us the unique opportunity to achieve our shared ambition of connecting people and improving lives.

“I loved collaborating with DHL on this project. Rio is my favourite place on earth, it was incredible to get a chance to return, to connect with the community and support the incredible work that VUSS do. I really think DHL's donations to VUSS are going to make a huge difference. I feel very lucky that I’ve had this experience.”
