Hey everyone! My name is Amanda J.E.A. I a student at Washington and Jefferson College who wrote for the Odyssey my freshman year. I chose this college because of my many alumni family members and their wonderful experiences with the campus greek life communities along with volunteer work and other endeavors. I was dutifully praised by previous teachers from my high school and other social networks for what I've written about diversity and acceptance. I aim to continue to be a voice for those like myself who deal with issues such as anxiety disorder and traumatic past experiences where an outlet has allowed me to have a place to get out all of my emotions.
