Odyssey Articles

Having my voice and opinion spoken and heard by people from all over the world is such a cool concept. Last year, I had the incredible opportunity to write for a website called “The Odyssey Online”. The Odyssey is an online community that creates content based on what really matters to each individual author. As both a writer and a reader of Odyssey, you have the opportunity to open your mind up to new perspectives and view points about almost any subject topic out there. Every week, I wrote and submitted an article for publication. I wrote about what was most relevant to me and what I was the most passionate about– it’s no surprise then that the majority of my articles had to do with traveling, volunteering, living abroad, and related topics. Below is a collection of all the articles I wrote and had published on The Odyssey. If you have the time, take a gander and scroll through some of the things I thought were important enough to be written and shared among thousands of Odyssey readers.
