I was super hesitant about joining a group of people where writing was the main thing.
I mean, me as a writer? Psh, never.
Because, first off, I am not a great writer.
Secondly, I thought I would never be able to write so easily about anything I wanted.
And thirdly, it took all the motivation I had for me to just write a paper for school.
However, all of that changed whenever I joined Odyssey.
Before I joined, I was familiar with Odyssey articles from my Facebook feed.
I would see where a lot of my friends would share these articles.
From there, I would take the time to read them.
Every Odyssey article I ever read always related to my life in some way.
Being asked to join the Odyssey family was such a blessing because I knew that I would be able to express my ups and downs of life and there would be someone out there who could relate to it.
I don't know, it is such a nice feeling knowing your words could make someones day and remind them that they are not alone.
Even though my time with writing for odyssey is coming to an end, I will always remember what it felt like to write out my thoughts.
It was basically like an open diary for me.
I not only grew in my writing, but I also met a lot of great people throughout.
As much of a pain as I was at times, my team always remand patient with me and always encouraged with me.
I am glad I was able to be a part of something that always stood out to me.
Odyssey will continue to a part of my life, but just from the reader point of view now.
Keep it up writers and thank you for having me!
