9 Reasons Why Wake County Odyssey Loves What They Do

I've been a content creator for Odyssey for over a year and Editor in Chief for almost half. I love what I do and I love my team, who also loves what they do!

1. “I like that it’s a cool outlet for my brain. I think that people should join Odyssey because it’s a great tool for enhancing your writing skills and it’s a resume builder.” Content Creator Lucas Kozeniesky

2. “Being able to improve my writing and express how I really feel (which is hard for me to do in a conversation) are some of the reasons I love Odyssey.” Content Creator Lorna Johnson

3. “[I like that] I get to do a wide variety of writing here.” Content Creator Robin Gruendl

4. “My favorite part is being able to have a platform to express my views publicly! As a minor, there are limited ways I can share my opinion and I actually be listened to, and I really appreciate Odyssey offering a way for teenagers and young people to speak up on issues that matter to us!” Content Creator Jillian Ward

5. “My favorite part is the resume boost! I get to have products to show during job interviews and my name is on the Internet which is good!” Social Media Director Savannah Little

6. “[I like] that it creates friendship and brings old friends together.” Secretary Carey Shook

7. “[I like] getting to express myself through writing and the family dynamic that we all have.” Content Creator Rachel Smith

8. “[I like] getting to work with my best friend all the time while also forming new friendships, being able to express my opinions in my writing while also starting a conversation with those who read my articles, and honing my writing ability.” Content Creator Shannon Kerns

9. “I love that I get to know so many different people that outside of Odyssey I might never get the chance to. I enjoy getting to see all the hard work that the team puts into their pieces pay off. Our team is a family, it’s wild and fun. People should join Odyssey so that they can have their voice heard and meet new people.” Editor-in-Chief Blair Gruendl

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me.

Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
