Meet Syracuse Odyssey: Mya Pfeifer
By Mya Pfeifer

Hey, what's up MTV?! Welcome to my crib!

Just kidding... but welcome to the Odyssey at Syracuse. I am the current president of the Syracuse University Odyssey community and I LOVE the Odyssey. But there's a whole lot more about me that I'd love for you to know...

For instance, I'm kind of from Chicago but I'm kind of from Wisconsin. You see, I will always introduce myself by saying "Hi, I'm Mya and I'm from Chicago".

But that's not as close to home as you may think. In reality, I'm about 20 minutes away from the Wisconsin state line, I am a huge Green Bay Packers fan, and cheese is my love language.

Basically the best way to describe where I'm from is to say that I live at Six Flags Great America, on top of Raging Bull.

As for school, I am a public relations major at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse. I can't wait to spend my whole life studying new means of two-way communication between organizations and their publics (Syracuse PRL 206 Students will understand).

Other than writing for Odyssey, I am also the Public Relations Chair for OttoTHON and I am a member of Danceworks and PRSSA. On top of all of that, I am a member of Alpha Xi Delta!

OttoTHON is one of my favorite things in the world and you can often see me around campus telling people all about Dance Marathon and why they should be #FTK (for the kids).

I have been dancing since I was three years old and I continue to dance in college with Danceworks. This costume was by far the best one I've ever had.

In my free time (I don't typically have much), I love spending time with my friends and playing Mario Kart. I also enjoy the feeling of solitude when sitting in bed watching Jane the Virgin for hours on end.

The number one thing you need to know about me is that I love my school.

Kisses to Otto xx

Thanks for getting to know me today, maybe next time we'll get a little closer and I'll make some inappropriately timed jokes about my mental health

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
