I hope to use the Odyssey to open up dialogs on topics that are otherwise overlooked. I hope to write stories that will help people think critically, and on occasion, laugh heartily. My perspective, like anyone else's, will be different. There is nothing about my perspective that will be all that different than any other applicants you consider. What I can offer is a deep curiosity and a excellent work ethic! If I joined the Odyssey I would use these skills to create conversations that need to be had. Thank you for this opportunity!
