My name is Calista Whitney and I am going to be starting as a Freshman at Willamette University this Fall. I am very opinionated, but also open-minded. I am an introvert, but like to write which is why I like being a contributor to the Odyssey. I am vegan and love animals. I am a feminist, as well, and can not still believe that gender inequality is an issue. I am compassionate and empathetic. I am very passionate, too, and would love to get people concerned about not only issues that effect them, but also issues that are occurring all over the world. I am also really hoping to raise awareness about problems, get others concerned about them, and hopefully find solutions to them.
