It kind of feels like I'm breaking the fourth wall a little here, but whatever! I wanted to say thank you to the Odyssey.
Thank you for introducing me to my Odyssey family.
Thank you for allowing me to create anything I wanted.
Thank you for showing me how to view topics from a new point-of-view.
Thank you for helping me express my thoughts and ideas.
Thank you for giving me a place to vent and use my emotions.
Thank you for teaching me real-life skills.
Being a creator at the Odyssey has been absolutely amazing. I have learned so much about myself, writing, and the world around me. During my time here at the Odyssey, I was able to gain experience that I wouldn't trade for the world. Being apart of my campus community made me feel like I had a voice.
Since we already have so much darkness, and heaviness in the world. I used my time at the Odyssey to create fun, light-hearted pieces. I have been able to give people a bit of entertainment, in a time filled with so much uncertainty. I will be forever grateful for my time spent here at the Odyssey.
If you're considering applying to be a creator, you definitely should. It is a fabulous opportunity that I couldn't recommend more.
