I am currently a freshman at California Lutheran University, but I am originally from the state of Washington, so living in California is a completely new thing for me. I've always been an athlete, and I have played basketball my whole life, but now I am on the track team at Cal Lutheran. I am interested in working for the Odyssey because I love writing, and I have always loved writing. I am a very athletic person, but when I'm not busy working out or doing things for the track and field team here, I am writing. Some of the most interesting things that I have found to write about involved the athletic world that I have lived my whole life in, as well as just the life of a young adult and growing up in general. I am currently enrolled in a creative writing class, one similar to one I took in high school. Along with that, I am also a communication major, and I am pursuing a background in journalism. My English minor is centered around creative writing, from short essays, to poems. Something I love about the Odyssey is how accurate the articles are to people's lives. There are so many "open letters" or just
"personal essays" that I've read that have really spoken to me and just seem like the type of work I want to pursue and go into.
